The aftermath

Chicago was an awesome marathon for the three of us.
Dev got her sub 5 PR. Reagan got a 4:36 and I got a 4:43. I was hoping to get it below 4:41 which was my PR last year at the Twin Cities Marathon but it wasn’t meant to be.

One day I would earn that ultimate dream of mine to have a negative split on my marathons. Right now I am just going with the “run as fast as you can” mentality.

But for now I am still enjoying my strategy even though I hate slowing down at the last half.

I was giving a thought about asking one of the really fast pacers about what it would take to get to their level. But I stopped cause I know I wouldn’t be able to handle the answer at least not just yet.

Another marathon

I am now sitting on a plane to Chicago. Feeling hot right now , the plane AC hasn’t been turned on yet. I hate that feeling. And Dev and I took this connecting flight from Detroit to Midway, and this plane is a small jet.

It still is hot outside. Tomorrow would be better according to the forecast. Lows of 45 according to weather.com. That would be a relief. Its always good to run in cold weather. Hopefully we would get a PR. Most of my best runs were on cold weather.

Chitown here we come. Now what to eat for pasta dinner?!?
