After the 2009 Twin Cities Marathon, I remember thinking "I’ll run fast soon"...I knew the day had gone wrong and I was pissed. I cried, sure I had run a P.R., but I was ready for a bigger day. I angrily packed my bags, hung my head, and left the 2009 Twin Cities/USATF Championship race upset. I hated not showing my fitness. As years passed, I regretted not enjoying my PR.
Picture this… It’s race day, the legs are feelin’ good, you’re cruising along in an effortless motion, nothing can stop you and you end up running your fastest 13.1 of the year.
BUT... your race still isn't over, which is fine because you're feeling yourself. These are legs of pure power. You run an even faster half than the first, in fact you PR'd. Aka you now have a massive marthon PR and the big ol’ OTQ.
