My 2010 LA Marathon Results

It hurt.  It really hurt!  I should stick to swimming.  Swimming the 1500 Free is a cakewalk next to running a marathon.

So I am on the disappointed side.  I really thought I could hold a particular pace but over time it proved to be not the case.  I ended up doing 5:44.18.  While I was running and checking my pace I kept revising my goal time.  I was so hoping to be under 5 hours even if it was a thousand of a second.  Then instead of hitting the wall the wall came crashing down me.  After mile 17 it was bloody murder.  But this was my 1st marathon after only doing two 1/2 marathons.  Six months ago running a 10K was a challenge.  So I should be happy but I just know I should do better.  But that is what next year is for.  Training for 2011 LA Marathon starts soon!

Congratulations for finishing. The longer you run, the easier it will be to run long distances - you EASILY have a sub-4:00 marathon in you if you keep running for the next couple of years, and if you have a steady training season for next year's race, I'm sure you'll be able to pull off safely sub-5:00 with no problems...
