I believe the amount of time that passes between racing and writing a race recap is an indication of how many emotions you have about said race. Which is why it has taken me just over a month to write my Chicago Marathon recap. Admittedly, I was busy playing Trivia and drinking Bell’s Two Hearted Ale in Ohio with my siblings the following two weeks after the marathon, but I digress. I was attempting to sort out my emotions post Chicago.
I am pleased with a nice new personal best of 2:40:56. I am bummed I didn’t execute my race goal(s). Which leaves me feeling all sorts of incongruity.
