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.
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.
Awesome job! I look forward to the recap, but it sounds like you had a pretty good day!ReplyDelete
