Run and done!
It's a good thing that there are no style points in finishing marathons. While I successfully finished the Green Mountain Marathon, and achived my goal of running a marathon in all 50 states plus DC, this race was far from pretty. In fact it was rather ugly. My race - not the course. The implosion started early. Mile 3 in fact. Things just went downhill from there, despite my attempts to ignore the not so sublte messages from my achilles. The pace went from decent to okay to bad to shuffling and walking. But I still finished. Full race report later. If I feel like reliving it!
