3 hr 02 min at Skagit Flats Marathon

I am relaxing after another marathon- the Skagit Flats Marathon in Burlington WA. Don't even ask- I saw it on the internet Thursday so figured why not? I've done some decent track workouts but long runs have all been on trails- in order for me to break 3 hours again I must get out on the roads once in a while for some 17-18 mile runs. I am lucky if I get 12-13 miles on any trail run. That won't cut it when you have to run 26.2 on the roads.

I am actually grateful I was able to finish as strong as I did.
