Well I’m sure you all are wondering…and unfortunately it was not the ending I hoped for.
Long story short-great first half, on pace for 3:33…then things started to fall apart. Finally culminating with the (sh)IT band giving out and my day being over at mile 21. Yep. My first DNF.
I do think I made the right decision at the time-I had nothing to prove by prolonging the agony for 5 more miles. But I won’t lie, I am disappointed. And I have a feeling I am gonna be an emotional wreck come April (well when am I not, but this time moreso)
More to come when I return to NYC…
