Yipes

This picture sums up my Rhode Island experience. The bear chasing me was my really good showing in Kentucky two weeks prior. The look on my face was my inability to escape it.

From the very beginning of the 2013 Cox Rhode Island Marathon, my heart wasn't really in it. My legs were hurting and I knew it was going to be a long day. Since i decided to try to turn around and do 3 marathons right in a row, I knew I would have some trouble. Add a dash of rain and humidity and you have a subpar day.

At any rate, I'm happy that race is over. There wasn't vey much to it. The beginning was not pretty at all (after we left downtown Providence). Once we reached the prettier ocean homes, it improved. The trail back to town was pretty. My heart was beating too fast and my legs were hurting too much for me to get an effective time.

Next up in the pain express... Indiana. I have 3 weeks. Not expecting anything better than RI. I may just go out and, since I PR'd this year already, may just take it easy. Will I enjoy that though?
