Second marathon complete! Lots of firsts: First trip I’ve flown specifically to race. First race in Washington State. First trip with SF Runs. First race with a pacing partner. First sub-3:20 marathon.
I’ve written a full race report. But it’s long (1776 words!), so I’ll save it for my blog. In short — this was a fun, educational race (“racation”?) I improved on my first marathon two months ago by almost 10 minutes but, I started out too fast and ran the second half too conservatively to hit my 3:15 goal. Disappointed, yet still stoked by the experience. Looking forward to the San Francisco Full Marathon with relish now!
