Another Marathon in the books
This past Saturday was the Walk Wisconsin event in Stevens Point. It is the event I have been training or walking towards all Spring. This is my second year. It went well, I finished the 26.2 miles at 3:10pm over an hour less than last year. I was doing 15 minute miles for most of it until the blisters started around mile 21-22. I physically felt great and had no cramping etc. The weather was good, sun in the morning then some rain in the last part. The route was changed this year due to some green circle rebuilding. We ended up walking to the half way point, then back again. The second half was ok, having the 1/2 and 1/4 marathoners closer and around did help break up the monotony of walking the same areas. G finished her first 1/2 marathon, I know she wants to do the whole marathon next year.
