|Half way through the Arizona marathon|
A big thanks to Jacob for practically carrying me in to the urgent care center after the Salt Lake race, Zach for taking me to the desert for some camping and outdoor fun even though I was on crutches, my bike for keeping me sane all summer, and Marcin for the essential pre-race margaritas in Phoenix. I hope I learned some lessons to keep me from repeating those four months.
I promised not to push myself too hard in Arizona, but I felt strong throughout the entire race. I didn't pay too much attention to my time at each mile since my primary concern was making sure my leg felt good, but I knew I was having a good race. In the end, I finished in 3:45, just 5 seconds slower than my best marathon time. Not a PR, but I've never been happier after a race.
