Marathon número dos is in the books: Big Sur International Marathon.
It was a BEAUTIFUL day along the coast! I’m happy with my time: 3:59:45 @ 9:09 pace. I was trying for a slightly faster time, but stopped to take some pics (it was hard to pass up!), hit the portajohn at the midpoint (glad I made this choice!), and walked ahead of some cramps I felt coming on a few times (I’m learning!)
Still, it’s a new PR and a sub-four hour finish too…15 precious seconds!
Full report later this week.
