Overall Average Pace: 9:54

​Conditions:

  • 48°
  • ​Wind SSE 8 mph
  • ​Humidity 85%​

Observations:

  • This was a marathon race, but I bonked much to my dismay.
  • ​How could my Garmin show an entire extra mile? I tried to stay in the center of the road to prevent weaving and added mileage. Clearly, this was an epic fail!
  • ​The weather conditions were perfect for the majority of participants. For me, it was uncomfortably cold. I dressed appropriately, but did not fuel or hydrate because I was not sweating. I developed leg cramps at mile 20. I stretched, walked, fueled. Unfortunately, I experinced little to no relief. My pace slowed significantly. 
  • ​My hopes of negative splits did not occur.​

​Splits:5 mi - 9:18 / 10 mi - 9:40 / 15 mi - 9:39 / 20 mi - 9:59 / 25 mi - 10:38 / 27 mi - 9:45
