- Whenever a race says it is a net down hill course they mean that there are lots of hills.
- 75 degrees is nice for the beach but not for completely exposed miles 19 through 26.2.
- The Pacific Northwest is beautiful when the weather is nice.
- But most importantly, don't run a marathon with a sprained ankle.
Guess what? I was right. I ran my second fastest marathon on a sprain, in 75 degree heat, on a rolling course through beautiful areas of a city I most likely will never visit again. A win in my book.
