I’m working on a lengthy post for this adventure, but wanted to post some info on my race.
I finished 49 out of 199 marathon finishers and 11th in my age group.
I also beat my Boston Marathon time by 1 minute and 15 seconds. I did not expect that. After Boston I took a week off and only did two long runs. My total miles over six weeks were about 120 miles. Not the best training plan.
When I looked at the elevation profile for Bay of Fundy I knew it would be a challenge. Great Bay has a few big hills, but it is only a half and there are really only three BIG hills. Bay of Fundy is death by a thousand hills. Once you get onto Campobello Island they just keep on coming at you.
It was a tough race. I met some great people and felt totally welcomed by the community. They were all very happy to see us there and it felt good.
My lengthy post should be ready by Wednesday. More pictures, I promise.
Run well my friends,
