Just a note. I completed the Hyannis Marathon yesterday. It took me about 5 hours 40 minutes, which is longer than it took me to run my first marathon about a year ago, and a full hour longer than it took me to run Smuttynose this past October.
If nothing else, this is a perfect example of why training is so important. The fact that I could even complete this marathon given my relative lack of training this time around (as realized during the run) is amazing to me.
I'll write up a small race report soon with a few more details about the course and the day in general.
