Marathon Minutiae

For those of you into the “numbers” of it all:

3 gels consumed (mile 7, mile 15, mile 20)

1/2 CLIF Bar (mile 11)

55 ounces of Gatorade

60 ounces of water

24 water stops walked through

6 hours without peeing


10K: 57:14/9:13 pace (first mile took 9:58)

10M: 1:30:40/9:04 pace

20M: 3:02:47/9:09 pace

126 pounds one day prior to race

129 pounds three hours POST race

124 pounds two days after race

4 days of rest before running again

2.25 miles run post-marathon, with ZERO sore muscles (although there were some creaks, groans and tightness).

4 pages of handwritten notes on the last 6.2 miles of the race…which will be transformed into a post by the end of the weekend. And then I promise I’ll stop blathering on and on about this stupid marathon.

And to answer the most common question of “What’s next?” – I will be working to improve my 5K time over the next two months and I will be supporting Michelle in her marathon training. I also have plans to work in some weight training and pilates. In January, I will set a new goal!

Thanks for all the great comments (including the comment left in Tuesdays post by my husband – a must read)…the RBF rocks! And if you haven’t already, check out the pictures linked in the post below!
