One thing that I LOVE about the Illinois Marathon (as opposed to Chicago, or other big-city races...) is the un-obstructed GPS track. After 26.2 miles, you have a pretty good, accurate map, with minimal LossOSignal hiccups!
Not feeling the write-up on this one. Had big plans to do it up with Rally Monkey pics, in-race pics, on-course pics, etc. Just not feelin' it. Not bitter about it... This was FAR from my "worst" race, time-wise and / or psyche-wise. Dunno. Perhaps I just put it off too long. Doubtful though, as I've done some CRAZY-detailed write-ups WEEKS after races. Dunno. Cut/Pasting my GarminConnect notes below. Perhaps I'll re-visit this later, re-write it up later when Chicago training gets boring... Dunno.
Thought I was trained up for this one. Certainly thought I was more trained up than I was last IL Marathon....
And I hit a 4:15 there. So this one shoulda been better / easier / faster, right?
Legs felt heavy after 3 miles.
TOTALLY cramped about 11.
Considered DNF at 16, pushed through, had some excellent "push through" miles at 18-26.
Didn't see that coming.
Dissappointing, BUT perhaps serves as motivation for Chicago? We'll see. Considering Yasso plan. Dunno. Not feeling the write-up on this one.
