There were even some unexpected positives! I did not get one blister. My toes nails were not at all affected. My hip was better than it has been in a whole year! (Thank you KT Tape?!) I did not stress over what to wear or what to eat in the days prior and the weather was great.
My goal was to finish 36 minutes faster than last year and with all this going for me you’d think it would have been a no brainer. Well, I was 11 minutes slower than last year.
