Comments:

it was a good run. I should have stayed with the pace group longer but I felt so good and was enjoying the sites. Training with the ATC worked well for this run. The hills prepared me mentally and physically.
What would you do differently?:

I would have stayed with the pace group and intervals. Also, I would have run a couple 23 mile training runs to better prepare mentally.

I'd do it again but could have prepared better.

Was this the "redemption race" to the LA marathon?  If so, sounds like it went well!

Hills are good times…  

Lot's of long distance racing - nice!

I signed up for Ironman Frankfurt, next year July - and I am very excited about it. I originally planned to run my first Marathon in the middle of September, but am not sure if this is wise.

At one of my last swim sessions the week of my first Ironman, one of my training partners told me how she was envious..."your first Ironman is fun, you have no pressure and no expectations!"

I can't say it enough, the feeling of treading water for that final minute, helicopters over head, Mike Riley's Iron-voice over the P.A. - just awesome. I cannot believe I'm here!

This man’s story was so inspiring that my brother and I committed to doing an Ironman by the time we turned thirty.
