Toronto Marathon Aftermath (quickie)

Today I ran free. Free of expectations. Free of fear. Free of self doubt and free of regret.

I was gunning for 3:45..I finished with a 3:39.

Negative split the last half.

My marathon pace was 5:20 min/k. The last 10 km I was running at 52 min (almost 5 min/k).

Now I have trouble sitting down and walking down stairs. Going to shower and take a nap. A proper race report will come soon....

Thanks for reading and cheering me on.

TERRIFIC race, Cliff! Try walking down stairs backwards. It's usually easier than forwards. Look forward to the report!

WELL DONE CLIFF, FANTASTIC!

I don't know what to say, what a great race. It's always such a happy feeling to surpass your own expectations. All your hard work and training paid off. I'm looking forward to hearing about the race... until then, rest up and recover well!

Be especially proud of the negative splits!
