Day 1,634 – Carmel Marathon Relay Recap
Day 1,634 – 11,839 Miles
Everyone on our 4 man team is going to Boston in 9 days, so our team name was Boston Bound. I was leg #4 which was 4.2 miles.
Completely solo. Mile 2.5-4 were almost entirely uphill, just a steady incline most of the way, I could tell I was slowing down. Also around that time is when I merged with the Half Marathoners. Didn’t have much of a race mentality, since I didn’t have an adrenaline rush beforehand like I normally do at the starting line. I was all by myself at the exchange zone. During the last half mile, I kicked it into gear, last .2 I kicked again, and then with less than .1, I kicked once more. Finished very strong and very fast through the chute. Overall, good performance. Our 4 man team won $250 and some pint glasses. That’ll go towards our Boston jackets.
