In short:
Mad Marathon: It claims to be ”The World’s Most Beautiful Marathon” and boasts a spot as a Runner's World Bucket List Marathon. This was probably the hardest marathon I’ve run to date. Thankfully, my coach (Rob Hunter of Endeavor Running Company) helped get me race-ready. There really isn’t any way to 100% prepare for a race like this when you live at sea level. 2,100+ feet of elevation change makes the body feel some kinda way... I’m happy with my second best time, and second overall, claiming my first marathon podium ever! While giving me the Strava course record for the marathon seemed a little bogus, considering the second place finish, I’ll take it! I am grateful to everyone who has sent texts, messages, and love from across the world. Also, the biggest thank you to my bride for all your amazing support, who had our one-year-old daughter in tow as a spectator (she is perfect). Thank you also to Team Beef for allowing me to run with you.
