Whenever I have an event, I get so excited in the morning that I wake up really early and don’t go back to sleep because I am afraid my alarm won’t go off and I am going to miss it. Today was no different, the Marine Corps 17.75k has a 7a start and requires a shuttle ride after parking, but still there was no real reason for me to be up at 3:00a.
Felt pretty with my results from today. I was much faster than last year, dropping more than 30 seconds a mile. I am really happy with my overall results and placed much better than I expected I would:
- Overall: 239 out of 2,834
- Males: 188 out of 1,423
- 40-44 y/o Males: 27 out of 248
So I have gotten guaranteed access into the Marine Corps Marathon this fall, hopefully it is cooler than last years. Can’t believe last year was my first marathon and this year I will be running two in two weeks of one another. Going to be a busy year!
