First marathon in the books. Learned a couple valuable lessons. 1. More mileage (obviously). 2. Better pacing (Pain train). 3. Figure out how to fuel.

I ran the first 10 miles with DeRenzo until we found the 3:05 pacing group. Ran with them for 3-4 miles and then around the halfway point I picked it up because I saw my family twice between 13 and 16 so I had a lot of adrenaline flowing. That hurt me big time as I hit a big wall around 18. 20 I started to hurt real bad and slow down. 22 my hamstrings started to clench up which forced me to stop twice and stretch. These were very short stops because I knew at this point if I stopped running I'd be done for. But I never could find the pace again and just shuffled into the finish. It was fun having everyone out here and really enjoyed the first half. However, the last 8 miles was some of the worst pain I've ever experienced, especially from running. There's no way I do another marathon unless I'm properly trained and prepared, but with the lessons I've learned I'm not too worried.
