Marathon Number Three

I completed my third marathon today, running the ZombieRunner Quarry Lakes Marathon in Fremont.  My time was 4:05:52; well above my goal for the day, which was to finish with a new PR (well within reach.)  My calves (yes both of them) decided at mile 18 that today was not going to be a PR day.  I will post a race report later this week with the gory details.

For now, I’m going to rest and be glad that I finished very close to four hours – and only 47 second slower than my slowest marathon.  On the “to do” list now: look at strategies for dealing with calf cramps…since they seem to be a recurring issue for me on longer races, but not training runs.
