In the interest of brevity and avoidance of boredom, I've decided to do my write up of the Myrtle Beach Marathon in 10 words or less (per mile).
Mile 1: Oh look! An elephant
Mile 2: Gotta pee. Cool, trees over there
Mile 3: Other Marathon Maniacs. Yes Jo, Mellow Mushroom sounds good
Mile 4: I can run 10 any day. Hey Peter!
Mile 5: I've never run by an airport before
Mile 6: There's TJ! There's Allen and Laura!
Mile 7: The Market Common looks neat. Hey Peter!
Mile 8: How did I miss those fighter jets before?
Mile 9: Yes Jo, the Magical Mystery Pie
Mile 10: 10 down. Start over. I can do 10 any day
Mile 11: Shouldn't I be able to see the skywheel by now?
Mile 12: Yes Jo, I promise we'll go to Mellow Mushroom
Mile 13: If I just ran up that road I'd be at my hotel
Mile 14: Well that wasn't the fastest half I've ever run
Mile 15: Will this road never end?
Mile 16: No really! are we ever getting off this road?
Mile 17: That's a huge house
Mile 18: Finally a turn! I hate u-turns
Mile 19: It's hot
Mile 20: Waffle time. tired. pizza
Mile 21: who got the number of the truck that hit me
Mile 22: who got the number of the building that hit me
Mile 23: who got the number of the meteor that hit me
Mile 24: Better pull your shit together boy
Mile 25: Keep it going 3/1 ratio
Mile 26: Where the hell is the finish line
Mile 26.2: Ok, what's next?
Overall, a new PR, my 3rd straight. But I need to figure out how to avoid crashing so bad at mile 20.
