I ran in the Ogden Marathon this weekend. It was my third one, so I thought it would go much smoother than it did. Turns out I trained too hard too close to the race, and consequently became very sore after mile 8. My pain threshold was put to the test the last 6 miles. My (not) record breaking time was 3:59:04, a 9:07 min/mile pace. Not as fast as St. George, but not even close to my disaster at Deseret News.
Glad it's over.
