I thought I’d let ya’ll know how the Columbus Marathon went real quick-like. 14,000 racers started together on the 35degree Sunday morning. It was great, I was dressed perfectly in a long sleeve and shorts.
I finished in 3:19:51, over 2minutes faster than my previous best, and good for 15th in my AG and 56th overall. It was a competitive, fast course and I felt really good about the race. Toward the end, I’d lose focus and fall apart biomechanically. Cardiovascularly, though- I felt amazing! I had a minibonk around mile 18. Needless to say, my last 10K was a little rough. I had the right mentality for most of the race, though, and really felt it was my strongest marathon yet. Still, I know what to work on for next time, though!
I’ll write a more thorough race report later. Gotta go to work now!!
