ADT Marathon Colorado Springs, Colorado

26.2 miles 2:53:14 6:36 average per mile
9th overall 2nd master
6:30 am) cloudy 60's
30th marathon and a Colorado PR.
Goal today was to break 3:00. My training has not been focused
for marathon distance so was not sure what would happen. My
longest run was only 17 miles. I hit mile 18 today and thought I
was going to bonk as I felt low on energy. Around mile 20 though
I felt great I ran hard the last 10k. My last 10k was my fastest
miles of the day. Mile 26 was my fastest with a 6:18. I'm very
happy with my race today. I have had a string of disappointing
races so glad to have a good one. Hopefully this will be a good
sign for my next marathon October 21th and 50 miler in December.
