Back to life, back to reality

Soooooo, yah. I didn't make my goal :(
4:24 was just out of my reach.  Apparently I finished with a time of 4:42. Not AWFUL. But I must admit that I was disappointed - which, I know, right? Is insane. My body managed to KEEP RUNNING for four goddamn hours and 42 bleeding minutes. What more can I ask of it?
To be clear, I never really hit the proverbial "wall".
My body never said "You shall not run anymore today".
It just clearly enunciated that I would not be running very fast.

I took a look back at my pacing today and I must admit that I kicked ass on the hills, which took up most of the first 15 kilometres of the course and climbed nearly 400 feet. It was after that when things started to wind down a bit.

I have much more to say on the topic, and a full race report is imminent :)
