Marine Corps Marathon
October 31st 2010
4:00 - Have to achieve this regardless of loss of life and/or any limbs
3:30 - My actual goal. Based on training, this is achievable
At 8:00am the gun goes off and 26.2 miles to go. There is really not
much to say as far as my race report. The first 24 miles felt great.
The last two miles really sucked. I ran\walked the last two miles
with around 30 seconds of walking each mile. My legs were heavy and
screaming in pain. I sprinted in the last 200 yards after seeing my
girlfriend dressed as wonder woman and to meet my requirement to pass
the 3:30 pace guy. Check mark for a life goal.
Conclusion: The marathon was fun, but I am not in any real hurry to
sign up for my next one.
Note from Lauren:
Phil really listened when we told him his last report was a novel :) He may not be in a hurry to sign up for another marathon...but he did sign up for Ironman Cozumel with me!
