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.
Unofficially, my time was 3:45:34 – a slight PR over my Sunburst time.
Stay tuned for a full race report coming soon!
