I'm running the Great Lakes Bay Marathon in Midland Sunday, and I just wanted to see if anyone else is in.

I am! I'll be wearing a Marathon Maniacs jersey or short sleeve yellow shirt. Black skirt. 

I'm guessing this race is pretty small?

I think so. The RD extended the discount rate. I think last year was about 1,500, I'm not sure it will be that large.

I will have a bright green Nike hat and white 2xu shirt.

I was hoping for a 4:30, but finished at 4:56. Guess I'm ok with it since it was under 5hrs and I haven't run more than 3mi at a time since Mid-march. The heat got to me after mile 16!

How about you?

I was able to stay with the 4 hour pacer until I got tied up at the 16 mile aid station, then I lost her. I was doing well until I hit the swamp at mile 21. The heat and heavy air just drained me and took all of my energy. I finished in 4:21:33. I couldn't believe how hot it was, and to make it worse, I was thinking that when I got home I would take a nap in the sun, it was 30 degrees colder at home.
