    This one was easier AND harder than the last one. Easier: course was familiar and relatively flat compared to KC. Harder: I wasn’t properly fueled. A sugar detox is not something to do before a race. Mentally I was more tired. There were fewer people. There were a lot of times I was alone and that’s never as much fun. It was definitely a mind game to have to see the 18 and 25 mile signs on the first lap. Knowing those are not for me right now. Also the marathon relay teams made it tricky. All the fresh runners around me made me feel even more tired. Especially at the end. I beat the rain!!! Very light sprinkle-y rain, but it would have made mile 26 just that much more miserable. The 3:45 pacer was dressed as a giraffe. Seriously. Leggings, arm sleeves, a headband with little giraffe antennae?! what are giraffe antennae called?!?! First I wanted to BQ. Then as that slipped away, I wanted to beat the giraffe. At mile 20 I couldn’t even see her behind me. But by mile 21.5 she had caught up and by mile 23 she had slipped away from me. But!! The lady who was running with her eventually dropped back at mile 24 or 25… and I didn’t think I could catch her… but I told myself “she might be in my age group! That might be 3rd place!!” And I managed to push past her in the last 0.1 mile and finish before her. No idea if she actually was in my age group or not. But I guess that wasn’t even the point. The point was, I told myself I needed to beat her. And I did. This race qualifies me for marathon maniacs!!

    Well done, Katie! And especially two weeks after a strong effort in Kansas City. I'm assuming this means no more sugar detoxes during marathon week? ;) Glad you found the motivation to keep pushing ahead in the closing miles, and congrats on qualifying for Maniac status! 👏 LESS
