Arizona Desert Classic Marathon Quick Post


Well, this morning I did do the Arizona Desert Classic Marathon in Surprise Arizona.  This was a "day of' decision on account that the Phoenix area has been having a bit of rain. I don't mind running in drizzle but I did I want to run a full marathon in pouring rain?  No. 

I am happy to report that while the skies were cloudy I was able to complete the marathon and had my best time in a LONG time.

The Race

First off, I ran a 4:07:10 or so.  It was a small race and I nabbed my first age group award in a marathon.  This is positive because I also ran 8 minutes faster than I did in Vegas on an arguably much tougher course.

I will do a full write-up once I can pull the garmin data and get everything together.

But in short, I did do the marathon and had a pretty good race.  While I didn't hit the 4 hours I was shooting for, this course was a lot tougher than anticipated.
