Two days ago, Jared and I ran the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon for the third time. It was also my debut as a Marathon Maniac, which was ridiculously fun.
I knew pretty early on that I wasn’t going to PR, but I ran one of my most consistently paced marathons. Still, I’ve got to work on not falling apart in those last 6-10 miles…
Official Finish Time: 26.2mi, 4:10:05 (9:32/mile)
I really wanted to break four hours again, but it wasn’t my day. It was, however, my brother’s day! Ryan was busy turning 26 years old while I was running 26 miles. It was super awesome to have my family there to cheer me on (even if Ryan would’ve much rather been sleeping).
After three marathons in five weeks, I’m definitely ready for a break, but… I don’t know how I’m going to wait FOUR months to run my next marathon…
The past few weeks have been a whirlwind–of marathons and migraines, family time and work demands, and it’s not calming down just yet. Jared and I are jetting off to Colorado for a long weekend with our college buds!
