Ran a sub 2hr half (1hr 50), maintained my pace through to 15mi where I completely fell off. I think the week and a half lost in training (especially the 15mi & 21 mi long runs) really hit hard there.

All the same I ran my first marathon 4:30. After years of Boxing, Hurling, Lacrosse, Hockey and wrestling I can say without a doubt this was the most pain I'd even been in.

Congrats on pushing through and completing your first marathon!

I fell apart around mile 11 Saturday in Louisville and gave some thought to dropping out.  But I’m stubborn and didn’t want to throw away the money I spent to travel there.  So I pushed through very slowly and managed to finish somehow.  That was state 14 for me and not sure yet about when/if for state 15.  Things went very badly for this race so have to try to figure some things out before deciding to do this again.

Way to stick with it and finish!

Physically? Mentally? Combo? It can be brutal sometimes. Way to gut it out though, that’s an accomplishment in itself.

Physically - felt my legs were in quicksand and slowed way down.  Mentally it got very tough after that though as I was frustrated and moving so slowly.  I also thought I might not finish in time to get in the official results.  But I was determined to run the whole thing no matter what - luckily it will count so I won’t have to do that state again.

I ran much better last month in much worse weather conditions - it was just not my day on this race day.

And thanks

70 years ago today ... Roger Bannister became the first runner ever to break the 4-minute-mile barrier.

Ugh, I hear you.  My knee gave out once at about mile 8 of a half.  I finished, but they were literally taking down the signs by the time I crossed the finish line. 
Have some patience, FFS.

Sounds like I may get a spot in NYC through work/TCS, which would be awesome. The race looks more challenging than Chicago. Has anyone completed it?
