No, not Ellie.
I ran a slow marathon today. It was number 15.
My training was spotty with National Boards and a rough winter, the weather was warm, allergies were in full effect, and I simply couldn't stay hydrated enough. Some days are just off.
And it only took me 15 marathons to be okay with that.
I'm excited to more fully follow a plan this summer - I had an amazing plan in hand, and ended up injured from a pair of defective shoes and simply too overwhelmed to follow the plan. Time to try again!
