St George Marathon

I will do a more full write-up when I get home, but just wanted to put a little blurb up for now. I will definitely be making the St George Marathon one of the future Destination Marathons for a post! I have never run a more beautiful marathon before. It was extremely well-organized, everyone was well-fed (I mean, Texas Roadhouse BBQ sandwiches at the end!), just an incredible race.

For me, I did get a PR (3:35) but very disappointed that I wasn’t able to hit my goal of 3:25. I was on a good pace for it until late in the race. I had been nursing a hamstring injury for the last four weeks and I thought I had it healed up. It came back to kick me hard around mile 18. I thought I might have to stop but really didn’t want to DNF a marathon. So, I didn’t look pretty, but I did finish (and with a PR)! Anyway, I will do a more complete write-up soon with reviews and some of that great GPS data for any number geeks who are like me about that stuff :). I am sitting at the airport now waiting for my flight that doesn’t leave for about 6 hours 🙁
