11th running of the Carmel Marathon. My first race since 2019. Perfect day for a race. 31 degrees at the start, clear and breezy. I was scheduled to run the full, but did not get the training in, so I ran the half with Heidi.
I felt pretty good, but it was obvious that I was lacking the base mileage and speed work. My feet strted cramping up around mile 9.
7:23 mpm average.
