Wow... and I was wondering what taking just one e-cap would do. Obviously, not enough! Nice job, cAigr, very impressive. I like your moment by moment strategy shifts...
Nice run Pro,
Ok, so the pacing was crummy and you could have run faster if you hadn't made such a big "deposit" early. You did what you set out to...it's hard to argue with 5 out of 5...and you left yourself plenty of room to improvement for next time.
WTG on meeting all your goals. I can't see how those cramps survived the assault of all those E-caps, but at least the cramps didn't do you in. Nice RR, except for that breaking up...

Impressive race and more impressive step by step account. Thanks for taking the time to give us all details (seriously...I learned a lot from your report about hydration, which is always my weakest point during a race)
You have to be happy with those results.
Thanks for sharing your race and also the adjustments that you made along the way.
great race Craig!
You have now come a tad closer to your true ability, but you are so, so much faster than this-if you want to be. Unfortunately, you have all that fast twitch fiber (starting at your mouth...just kidding!!) that needs to be semi-converted to slow twitch-if you want to do well in the marathon.
I believe your greatest strength is at the short/medium distance races. You can be a terrific miler/3K/5K racer-but you already knew that...Plus you have this fettish for tri- sports. Sheessh. And now you have a following in lurkdom, look out!!
All kidding aside-
you rocked the marathon!
