Marathon day.

Felt ready to race! Started out right on target, felt relaxed and strong. Calves started to feel tight about mile 3ish- no pain in my shin/soleus. Not a good sign, but just stayed relaxed and kept going. Calves kept tightnening up. Bathroom stop at mile 13.

Came out of the bathroom and everything blew up. My quad tightened up, but was able to stop and stretch it out. Calves were locked up. I thought about turing around and dropping out b/c I didn't think I could run for 13 more miles, but since the course was closed and I didn't think I would be getting out for another 5 hours, I kept going.

My calves were locked up the entire race.... I took 5 bathroom stops and threwup 3 times.

I have never had such a terrible race....EVER!!!

Not sure why my calves locked up like that or my stomach was such a mess, but thinking the stomach flu my girls had the week before may have compromised my immune system (plus all the stress I have been dealing with between work, coaching, and volunteering at school).

Oh well. I ended up 9th female and 2nd age group. I think I would have smoked that course. The last 8 miles down the canyon are a nice mello downhill that would have been awesome to fly down. Have to redeem myself next  year....
