to my blister. 400s and 200s took their toll, but I got them done! I’ve got it tapped up nicely and stuffed into a compression sock. I’m sure I’ll be good as new by tomorrow.
I can’t wear socks with my Vibrams and 19F is too cold for sockless. So I’ve decided to wear my Frees to finish training for Cowtown . . . and this is what I get for running my ten miles in shoes. Looks like I have some toughening up to do.
Reminds me of the good days when I was training for more than one marathon a year. Maybe I should do that again sometime – like in 2011.
All I wanted to do after getting my medal was go home. Not back to the hotel, but home. I missed my family, my own bed and my car. The subway has a way of making you miss your car. I was pretty nauseus after the race and the subway ride back the hotel was not pretty.
I immediately jumped into the shower to sanitize myself. I was gross. Surprisingly, only one spot of chafing and one blister. A big one though. And what would a race report be without a nasty blister picture from Runner Susun.
After a brief rest, I checked my results. I was happy with my times for most of the race. Here are the splits, it’s obvious where I started to die.
