Best I have ever felt in a marathon. Ran a negative split
for the second half. First time I have done that. Crowds
were awesome this year. More than last year much better
weather. Sore today but no worse than usual. Very happy
with this one. I'll take it easy for a week or so then try
to pick up the miles again. Cellcom Marathon less than a
month away. Plan is to run it and see what happens no time goal.
If I could go under 3:00 it would be awesome but will see how I
recover from this one.
