Everything was going beautifully up to the half way point. I was even able to run through the water stations. I mastered drinking on the run and was doing this beautifully. Then, all of a sudden, cramping of the quads, eventually followed by cramping calfs. From that point on, I would run until the cramps got bad. Then I would walk it off. Then run again until I could run no more. This went on all the way to the end. I was so distraught that I even contemplated quitting somewhere around mile 19. I have not had issues with cramping since the last Houston Marathon. Perhaps this race does not agree with me.
Even so, it is still a P.R. for me. I broke 5 hours. I just need to figure out what went wrong. More to come later. This is a very busy week for me so take care and be well.
