A beautiful day for running. A tad more head wind than I prefer to run against but otherwise you couldn't have asked for a nicer day. I began this Marine Corps (one of my favorites) as my last long training run before tapering for the NCR Trail marathon in November. However, several miles into it I was suprised at how good I felt and decided to keep the pace up. In spite of this not being the easiest course around my stars, planets and moons were aligned and I ran a PR! The question for me now is am I going to go through with the NCR. Guess I'll have to wait and see how I feel.
I highly recommend the Marine Corps to everyone who is considering a marathon because of the great organization and support. This year was a little too crowded for my taste but it still ranks as one of the great marathons in the US.
