Jeff’s Post – Marathon # 5 In the Books! #38thMCM

Mission Almost Accomplished – Marathon #5 is done.  The stats 3:56 – My second fastest marathon time and 2 minutes better than my Marine Corps Marathon last year.  Still working on putting a complete 26.2 together.  I’m pretty darn good up until mile 18ish or so.  Things seemed so crowded this year and I was behind from the start and really spent too much energy trying to catch up and it just wasn’t my day.  I was so thankful to have Tamara, Samantha and my parents there to cheer me on.  I had some tough mental moments on the course a few days ago but as I sit here typing this my legs feel surprisingly good and I’m just itching to Marathon again.  I really do fee like I almost have this!  I’m capable of a sub 3:30 and I swear I WILL get there………..then I will worry about my real goal……..
