Cleveland Marathon Quick Update

What a fun marathon! My trip didn't start well. I forgot my entire running bag at home and realized this only when I arrived at the hotel. I had to buy
-shoes
-sports bra
-shorts
-gels
-salt tablets
-vaseline
-socks
-hand held water bottle

The only saving grace was that I had my watch and ipod. Oh vey... I was lucky everything worked out OK.

Back to back marathons seem to work for me. I ran a 4:13:47. Not a PR, but 10 minutes faster than last week. Full race report to come. TTYS

That would be a sucky way to start off marathon weekend, but didnt seem to bother your time much. Great job!

Marlene said...

I can't believe you forgot your bag. Way to roll with the punches and make it all work. Sometimes an impromptu shopping spree can be fun. :)

Congrats on an amazing time! If this trend keeps up, you'll have yourself a PR this weekend.
