Big Sur Marathon: Check!
The race was beautiful. No wind, no rain, just miles of coastal beauty!
For privacy reasons, I can’t share my exact time, but the range was between 4:15 and 4:30. This is a pretty wide range, but there you go. Oh, and I’m really happy with my time – I had no idea what to expect for a marathon, much less an incredibly hilly one such as Big Sur. Really happy.
I felt well prepared and didn’t hit a hard wall that I’d heard so much about. In fact, mile 23 was my fastest mile on the whole course! I credit the yummy fresh strawberries they had around mile 22.
Back to work today, and I’m only hobbling a little bit. My quads are sore/dead from the downhill part, and I’m a little worn down. But I’m elated! Racing is so much fun!
