LA Marathon – 4:02.11
A new PR – by more than 15 minutes.
– Despite only 5 weeks of training.
– Despite torrential downpours, 40 mph winds, and temps that brought spectators in ski coats.
– Despite everything and all the odds, I finished, and I ran all 26.2 miles without pain.
(so long as you don’t count mascara in my eyes and horizontal rain pelting my face)
Next time I might make it 8 weeks, but I am very pleased with how 5W2M treated me. Score another point for the No Train Race Plan. (That makes it 2-0, if you’re keeping track)
Full recap once there are official photos for me to steal. Now? It’s time to nap. Maybe by the time I wake up my skin will be un-pruney.
