Mohawk Hudson River Marathon

Mohawk Hudson River Marathon – Sunday 13th, 2013

I knew a few fellow Essex runners signed up for this marathon but was amazed to see so many fellow Essex / Fleet Feet and NRGY runners here today. It was a perfect day for running and this was a fantastic course.

There quite a few excellent runs today with:

Paul Kartanowicz – 20th overall and 3rd in age.
Harold Porcher – 23rd overall and 1st in age
Glen Freyer – 44th overall and 2nd in age.
Andi Robik 4:05:32 – a PR by over 10 minutes!

Special mention also to Tracy Keller cheering us along the course & Glenn Trimboli pacing and cheering!

My personal intent was to run 8 minute miles today and in the first 8 miles I maintained that perfectly without any effort on my part. I ran thru the 1/2 marathon split in 1:44:45 and felt so good I had visions of negative splitting. my 13 thru 18 mile times were in the 7:45 to 7:55 range but alas, by mile 22 my legs tightened up and I was having difficulty running 8:45 miles.

Tisha took a (foldable) portable bike we packed, a garage sale special, and rode from the finish line to meet me around mile 20. She then escorted me all the way back to the finish. I was happy with my time of 3:33:46 as since my last marathon a month ago I have not been able to train properly, it seems by the time I recovered I was back into a taper.

No more marathons for me till next year..
