Unfortunately, the forecast was for rain, and it didn’t disappoint.We woke up to gray, soggy skies, which continued throughout the entire race. It has only rained 3 out of the 39 years the marathon has been held! What are the odds?!!
Harmony and I only stopped once at mile 15 to use the restroom. We trudged up St. John’s hill and kept stride throughout the wet race. I wish I had worn a throw away jacket instead of tying one around my waist (like above). I didn’t have a fuel plan or a plan in general…ignorance is bliss?Despite the soggy conditions, we finished in 4:17. I’ll take it considering the less than ideal weather AND this being my first official race!
