A few tidbits that I found funny or interesting about the marathon this weekend.
Toward the end of the race I managed to find a biker (course marshal or medical person) who had something salty in his pack of goodies. He gave me a little package of trail mix. Knowing my stomach was not agreeing with anything, I very sadly threw all the M&M's to the side of the course and said a sad goodbye to each and every M&M.

I ran without music.

I had no appetite after the race. My stomach started growling during the middle of the night so loudly I thought I'd wake the whole house. Needless to say I was in the kitchen at 2 am for my first breakfast a mere 12 hours after finishing my marathon.

Somewhere during the 24th mile of the marathon I hit 1,000 miles for this year! I only have 48 mile to my goal for the year.

AG update: place 66 of 70
I went to a doctor yesterday because my ankle has been bothering me since Sunday when I ran. Apparently I need Bengay (really, am I that old??) and I'll be good to go. Thankfully, I just irritated the tendon that had tendonitis in it. FWIW, I did go to a doc who specializes in tendon and ligament trauma so I am not going to question his opinion on this one at all. I'll run tomorrow and test the ankle out. Tonight, I'm going to help eat an R2D2 cake.
