Fit to Run!
I made it!
The marathon was pure torture though which was mostly due to the weather. Usually, you would have expected nice spring weather. Warm, but not hot and a little rain maybe. Even low temperatures would have been okay.
But what did we got: 25° in shade, lots of sun and trees with spring leaves that gave almost no shade. With the low temperatures during the spring and lots of rain most of the non-pro runners like me were not prepaired for a day like this. Moreover, I caught a huge sunburn. Bad, bad preparation!
The day after: cloudy, cool, perfect marathon weather. Hmpf.
Never mind. I got through though I must confess that the time made me weep. 4:40. Embarrasing. But never mind again. I will improve considerably until the end of the season. I promise!
