I just love this race report. Ann is one hellva writer. Hearing others talk about having all those little mental answers seems to be a reoccurring theme that I need to have ready for IMLP next year. I know the mind wants to quit well before the body is finish. I experienced that first hand doing my first 1/2. I believe this is just a natural defense mechanism. It’s great to see others get thru this and drive towards their goals to be in some very elite group. Plus hearing the “Best Day Ever” will doing a full, is just pure motivation and what it’s all about – having 140.6 miles of fun!
