Or at least that's where you started.

I don't know how you run like this. I climbed a fence the other day and had to basically decide if I should go to the hospital.

I should quit. Way to go Bob.

I learned my lesson man. Miles 1-6 were great. i passed the pace team and maintained a great mental attitude. 7-13 i slowed a little but was starting to see myself crossing the finish. 19 i had to stop and use the rest room, this is when i started to realize that my lungs actually hurt. I also completely freaked out on this spectator who was in line to use the "runners" portable....starting the run again was one of the hardest things i have ever done. At mile 20 it became completely mental....my lungs were burning and my feet felt like they were on fire and my legs had given up and were numb. I literally ran the last 6 miles thinking 1 mile at a time. The last 3 miles were the worst....i think knowing where i was made it worst, but i have to say when passing some spots we hung out at i thought of you man . The last 1/2 mile i killed it and finished strong and without vomiting. I went directly to the beer tent!

That was a good day. You see any loud female donkeys looking for two guys to do most of the peddling on those mobile drinking carts?

^it took me over a minute to get up there and i needed help!

This may be the only time i stumbled into a beer tent and the bouncer believed me when i told him i had not had a single drink

I didn't seer the bike bar people on the race day...but the first day we were there at the convention center we parked right next to them....i started laughing and had to tell Hanna the story!

Thanks everyone....this was a huge thing for me. Next Marathon i have planned is the Santa Rosa Marathon then this one again. I had a blast and know i can do better if i get a full training period and fucking quit smoking

In all seriousness, how long does it take to recover? I've read about severe foot blisters, spine and back flare-ups, and just plain "hit by a bus" pains all over.

PS: I have a guaranteed quit smoking method if you're interested.

Quit cold turkey the day my daughter moved out 17 years ago.

PM me

I have to admit that i'm a little surprised with how i feel right now. I took the day off work to relax. Mainly i'm beyond hungry and my knees are very sore so stairs are my enemy right now. I rolled out my legs and even went for a slow mile run this morning, which was painful but beneficiary. My feet are feeling good, there was a large blood blister on my right heel yesterday that has already started to heal. I slept on the couch last night just due to exhaustion
