Here's a picture of me at mile 43 of the Capitol Peak run. I'm smiling because I had finally climbed my way out of Hell (Hells Loop) and was able to run down hill all the way to the finish. I ran the first two loops with Arthur and Shawn then went on my own through Hells Loop. I'm also smiling because the weather was beautiful and while I had tough times I was never at a point where I felt like I couldn't keep moving forward.
50 mile finish time 10:18:53
Eugene Marathon was well organized with another bluebird day and a great course. I struggled a bit at mile 18 but was able to muster a 7:43 pace for the last mile.
Marathon finish: 3:46:14
- Sore jaw from chewing same piece of gum for an entire marathon
- Right IT Band barking some. Rest and Ice should do the trick.
