This was my first marathon.  Something I never really thought I was going to do in my life for lots of reasons, but after running 6 halfs and with pressure to run from 4 brothers that also ran this race (3 for first time as well) I was really happy that I did.  On the other hand mile 24 25 and 26 and .2 really sucked.  The race is a fun one because of the great course, support and finish area, and being a Huntsville native, it was the old stomping grounds.  Beautiful day, perfect temperature, and a great dinner pre race by my sister in law Jamie who also ran.


8:41, 8:34, 8:30, 8:22, 8:34, 8:32, 8:24, 8:48, 8:38, 8:37, 8:51, 8:49, 9:13 half (1:53), I took a porta john break at mile 12.5 thinking I had to go, but I didn't have to go, which really just ended up being a time waster.

8:49, 9:09 hill, 8:46, 8:54, 8:43, 8:43 thought I was going faster here because of slight downhill in the canyon, but starting to fatigue out I guess, 8:50, 8:57, 9:06, 8:37, 9:07, 9:29, 9:34

 Overall I was really wanting this to be over mile 22 to 23 on.  Quads burning.  Ankle which was hurting a lot the last 2-3 weeks was actually sore but ok, not much of a factor. Happy with race to have finished the first one which is a mental hurdle, and I stayed consistent with my general game plan and broke four hours with some spare change.  Nice job to brothers Oreo, Mozzer, Hairdog and Fredrick.  You guys are studs.

Very strong first marathon bro, that was a fun weekend! Thanks for the pizza and the room. Stop talking about h20 skiing!

G-doctus - you are a star. Angel Star to be exact. Excellent 1st marathon. You were right on my heels. Also I think you need to attribute your ankle's performance to the halochip patch.... H2O soon my brother. St. George!!
