End of The Marathon Dream!
I'm kind of thinking of retiring from the Marathon, long term sciatic problems that show up on long runs over 2 hours make me think its time to stick to shorter distances!
The marathon was never my greatest love!
So I'm not all that sad about my decision, 5 miles-10 miles has always been closer to my heart!
And at the end of the day I think I achieved my best over the marathon that was possible.
Yes I wanted a 2.45 but 2010 was my best possible build up and 2.47 was the result.
2 mins faster at 49 years old compared to 2.49 at 38 years is not bad!
Its time to move on and do what I love!
ADIOS THE MARATHON!
