This has ben such an emotional weekend for me. I had friends PR and run their first 60k, friends PR both the half and the full at Philly, and one amazing friend that completed Ironman Arizona in under 12 hours.
And then I had an amazing group of friends that were running the Brooklyn Marathon. Before the race started I knew my legs felt fresh, but I had no idea how they would hold up under another 26.2 miles two weeks after NYC. I knew the fatigue would set in early, but wasn't sure how early (my guess was around the halfway point)
I really had a lot of fun this race. I was supported by an amazing group of friends, and I ran into people I hadn't seen in some time. Joe and I had at least 5 friends come out to run with us, and their motivation helped me out so much, words can't even describe.
