Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson
Way to go team blister! Wow, Erika -- 28th -- you didn't say you finished so low! Nice PR!

Went for a "recovery run" but it turned into a walk. My heart rate was in the high 180's -low 190's even running at a 13:02 pace on the treadmill. Stomach and chest started hurting so I ended up getting a little over 2 miles done in 30 minutes. So what ever was going on yesterday is still going on.
At least my legs are feeling great HA ( can you hear the sarcasm?)
Hey guys I'm ok.Female cramping and chest pain I couldn't run very fast or very far. Felt like DNF'ing from mile 6 or so on but that wasn't a choice. Anyway just thought I'd let ya know that I'm not injured.
I am proud of you Pam.
Sorry you were hurting. Takes a lot of courage to keep going forward, when you don't feel good.
Determination: The feeling you get right before you try something incredibly stupid.
pam - my respect for you went way up yesterday! The last half I ran my HR was in the 180s from mile 2 on and it sucked, but you gutted it out for the last 20 MILES OF A MARATHON! Fantastic.
Thanks Paul! Question for you. How long did it take to be able to run with your heart rate back to a more normal level? I'm still having issue's.
