Oct 18


I finished the Grand Rapids Marathon this morning.  I am absolutely drained.  I felt pretty good for the first half and then started to go downhill.  My left hamstring and corresponding knee started to give me trouble at that point.  I managed to keep running through the 19 mile mark, but hit the wall there and had to walk for about a half mile.  My dad joined up with me at about the 21 mile mark on his bike and that kept me moving as much as I could.  I walked a little bit here and there, but ran most of it.

IMG_4865I look WAY better than I feel at this point, but finish line was in sight, so I had to smile.

Unofficially, my time was 3:45:34 – a slight PR over my Sunburst time.

Stay tuned for a full race report coming soon!
