Legs still sore from Sun Crest Saturday.  Maybe I pushed it to hard for just before a marathon.

Working between 12-14 hrs per day.  My head hurts.  My brain feels like it's run a marathon and wants rest.   Ready or not UVM here I come.

A very nice day for a marathon. Temperatures were perfect at the start but to hot near the end. The mountains and valleys were beautiful and green. A very nice run. I did like the way they had the entire half of the road blocked off for runners down the canyon. The portipotty mess up didn't cause me any problems but I'm sure there were many uphappy runners. Luckily the half marathon portipotties were in the perfect place for me.

Now for my excuses of not going sub 3 which is usually my goal but I rarely achieve it. I ran Ogden three weeks ago and didn't do the right things to recover well. My two assistants at work quit and I've been working 70 hours a week and my brain is in shut down mode. My brain just wants to rest and not push.

I started out with low hopes of going sub three but still some hope. The first 5-6 miles felt pretty good but then I could tell I was laboring just a little to much for so soon in the race. I just didn't have the fresh happy feeling I need so early in the race. That is when I quit looking at my watch and just started to go by feel. That ended up being a good plan because around mile 20 my legs started showing signs of cramping. By mile 24ish I thought I might have to do some good walking but I think I took an extra slow mile that let my legs recover just enough to keep going to the finish. I finished 16 seconds behind the 1st place guy in my age division. To bad the legs wouldn't let me run. I do like getting a free shirt that says 2013 Boston Qualifier and the medals were nice.

See mile times below.  This years race must have started about a mile further up the canyon than 2010's race.  It finished near the Provo tabernacle not the Provo mall.
