Football, my first half marathon, & record temps coming
As we got into the corrals and started moving forward after the start I saw the doctor(medical director for the marathon) that helped me with my stress fracture/glutes issues. He fist bumped me a hundred yards from the start and said “Have fun out there today.” That totally pumped me up.
I started to feel a lack of endurance after taking the last 3 weeks easier than my training plan. But I kept pushing on. Walked a little and found someone to keep pace with for another mile or so.
I never got to see my grandpa and I looked for him everywhere. My mom surprised me and took a photo of me about 200 yards from the finish.
