Leading up to this marathon I knew I was fit and ready but unfortunately
I got the flu 10 days out and I was and still am suffering some of the
symptoms. Not sure how much this effected my race but pretty sure
it cost me a PR. I am very happy to run as well as I did. I did very
low mileage for this marathon but did more of the non running little
things and ate much healthier. I have another marathon in May so
if I can get healthy and at least maintain what I have I think I have
a great shot at finally PR'ing.
The Albany marathon is a great race. I loved the course gentle rolling
hills, tree lined roads and well organized.
