Cowtown Marathon

Today I ran my second fastest marathon ever. It was a real struggle the last few miles as I was fighting off cramps in my right hamstring. My time was 3:49:21 which I'm super proud of because I've run very little in the last three weeks since I DNFd at Rocky Raccoon 100 at mile 56 with leg problems.

I'm also proud of Marla as she finished her first half marathon and only started training a couple of months ago. She had a great time and is already looking for a date for her second attempt and setting a PR. I think she's hooked now.

As for me I need to heal up so I'll probably spend some time on the bike for a few weeks and stay off the roads. I've got a few months until the Big D marathon which will probably be my next race.
