OGDEN MARATHON

I didn't train at all for this race. I haven't done a long run of 20 miles since October! I didn't do any long tempos or marathon pace training. I also didn't do any downhill training. But this is my hometown race and I really enjoy it and I had the free VIP entry from winning last year. So I figured I'd try to hit the podium and collect some circuit points. Ben, Bryant, and I ran the first half together in 1:13:10. At that point Bryant surged, wanting a huge negative split to attempt the course record, and Ben slowed down a bit. I kept chugging away at roughly the same pace. With my lack of marathon prep I was too scared to try anything faster, not wanting another miserable Ogden finish. I ended up with a slight negative split and finished about 80 seconds back of Bryant for 2nd place in 2:25:46. So second half in roughly 1:12:36. I felt decent the whole way. Cardio-wise the pace was a walk in the park, but the legs didn't have the full strength needed to really get after the pace. Overall, I am pleased with the result. Once I get some marathon training in, I'll be cruising this fall.
