I'm in the process of writing up my race report for Smuttynose. I actually sat down the day after the race and wrote the draft, but it needs a lot of editing. Until then I thought I'd just post a quick overview.
My official finish time was 4:42:00, so I missed my goal of coming in at under 4:30:00. But it's still a huge improvement over my Myrtle Beach marathon time, so I'm happy about that.
The weather windy and rainy, but I was happy that the temps remained below 60°F.
I was not happy about the course or the race organization, but that'll have to wait for the full write-up.
All the marathoners received a really nice running jacket, which I'm sure to wear whenever I can this fall.
The picture below was taken by my dad as I was coming in to the finish. I ran the last 5 miles of this race barefoot as you can see.
