Long Beach Marathon 2018

Just a few months late but butter late than never I guess. I’ll keep it short. Went in feeling confident. Had a good training cycle, felt good going into race day. Weather was ok but not terrible. I set a goal of 3:25:00 and missed it by about 9 minutes. It was a 20 minute improvement from my previous full marathon but it wasn’t what I trained for. Cramps got me in mile 16 and I couldn’t hold pace. It just wasn’t in the cards for me that day. You can check the Strava results here. Big thanks to Matt Schuck for pacing the last 10 miles for me, keeping me motivated to finish when I wanted to quit and my brother Cong for being there when I needed him.

Official Time: 3:33:59
