... but to include that stuff I’d have to hire a real writer—like jlynnbob or somebody.
""...the truth that someday, you will go for your last run. But not today—today you got to run." - Matt Crownover (after Western States)
So what do you get for doing it? Are you planning to take it easy after this?
I'd be interested in hearing how you approached running 7 marathons in a year. Did you plan to try and "peak" for this one? Seems like you did since you were aiming for 3:24. How much did not holding anything back, knowing it was your last one of the year, play into it? Or did the moon and stars just line up for you to run your fastest marathon of the year on your last try?
And by the way, it's seriously disturbing - okay, disturbing to my ego - that you're calling a 3:33 marathon a "training run."
Hope that makes some sense and answers your question.
