Grateful to be vertical.
Hot day. Didn't hit any of my goals. Didn't matter.
My coach Angie said I could do a 1:50-1:52. I tripped myself (again) at mile 1.5 and was touched by the kindness of runners who helped me up and Jim O'Connor who stayed with me throughout most of the race. I struggled yesterday with the heat - forgot to take endurolytes and my legs/hamstring cramped so bad I had to ask a woman in Ohio City/Tremont for salt from her kitchen! Also - the GI issues continue. But given all that - to see so many great CTC and fellow athletes/friends racing, cheering, supporting AND to pay respect to folks that were injured - I remain extremely grateful to be able to do these things.
