2010 Boston Marathon #114
Wasn't exactly feeling it today and I realized it at 8 miles when my legs started to ache running 5:45 pace. knew it was going to be a long day running when that started to happen. Got through natick and wellesley ok and up the first two hills. Then heartbreak kicked my butt severely. No hidding the lack of true fitness I had going into this one. Back and hamstrings tightened up severly going done heartbreak hill into cleveland circle. Had to walk for ten meters until the right hamstring let go.

I am just not built for marathon. I can't hold up on the tougher courses for some odd reason. Hope to make a run at a fall marathon and do much much better. We will see.

At least I had some great fans!!!
