This was probably my toughest run. I hit my wall early. I was not expecting the hill at mile 11 and it hit me hard. It also didn’t help that I had to fix a blister on my foot at mile 18. Oh, and I got a side stitch at mile 2 (!!!), but luckily it went away at mile 5.
At mile 13, I was still on pace to be under 4:00, but I just didn’t have it in me. It was nice to have the boyfriend follow me along the course.
After I finished, I told him never again on a full marathon. But let’s be real. I’m still running that full in Ft. Worth in February.
PS-I was not happy when my watch said 26.2 and I couldn’t see the finish line yet!
