WOW! Cleveland "Heat" Marathon 2012
Monday, May 21, 2012
Well my friends... not to be a dissappointment but I dropped to the Half Marathon yesterday when I was trying to attempt my first Full. The heat here in Cleveland (86) was brutal for this Marathon. I decided at mile 11.5 to call it a run for myself and complete the Half and not attempt to go on for the full. My legs started to cramp along with my stomach (the bigger issue). I was well trained for it but I have only been running for 2 years and only road racing for a year and a half. This was my first experience in extreme heat and lets just say.... it did NOT like me or my body did not like it. At least now, I take this as another lesson learned... I can do a Half marathon under just about any conditions..lol! Full Marathon... I'll get you one of these days!!
