CIM Marathon

I was hesitant about shelling out the money to pay for a marathon when I could just run one on my own. It was definitely worth it though. Running with thousands of other people gave me so much more energy, and having a date on the calendar gave me something to train for.

Ari and I trained for three months in Bishop, California, which gave us the added benefit of a bit of elevation training (4,000 ft). By the time race day came around, the drop in elevation combined with the taper, the carbo load, adrenaline and caffeine, made me feel super human.

I’ve had a life long goal of breaking three hours in the marathon, and I broke that goal by quite a bit with a time of 2:53:41.
