I started off the race feeling great.  It was a mild 70 degrees with a nice breeze and a little sunshine!  The first mile flew by.  I didn't even realize we had gone that far until I heard it on my Nike + GPS app.  Mile 2 was when I started to feel my knee again, and I couldn't believe it started so soon. In an attempt to get rid of the discomfort, I decided to stop and stretch my IT band.  Thankfully, it worked!  The only downfall was I had to stop at every mile and do the same stretch for a few seconds.  If you notice above, there is a five minute difference in my chip and GPS time. This is because, when I stopped to stretch at every mile I stopped the GPS.  I wanted to get an accurate read of the actual time I spent running.  According to my GPS read time, I successful shaved off 6 minutes from my first half marathon 6 months ago!

I'll be back tomorrow for a full weekend recap from our girls weekend in Myrtle Beach.
Happy Monday!

Congrats! That is awesome! I have never ran a marathon, but I used to run cross country in school. It was such a great stress reliever. I really need to start running again, but it is just so hard to find the time. Congrats again! :)

That officially put you into one of those pedestals for me that I know I'll never get. I'm in awe of people that can run more than 1 mile at a time (i know, I'm pathetic). Amazing!
