I will write a full race report when I get home tomorrow but I just thought I would post a quick update on my 5th marathon!
I ran in the D&L Trail Marathon in Northampton, Pennsylvania. This race was very different from what the NYC Marathon would have been like, I’m sure!
I had to have some serious talks with myself on some miles and my second half was about 5 minutes slower than my first half. I managed to pull it together the last mile and a half and I finished strong.
There were hundreds of NYC runners there. We were all nicknamed the “NYC Refugees.” The local runners were very supportive (and maybe a little intimidated) by the NYC crowd.
My official time is 3:11:20. (7:18 avg.)
I was hoping to break 3:10 but I know I will get there when the time is right. For now I am thrilled with my new PR! Thank you, God!!
My sister PR’d big time! Her previous best marathon was a 4:01. She ran a 3:27 today!! So happy for her!
Full report coming soon! : )
