Akron Marathon

October 1st was the 2005 Akron Marathon. This marked my year mark in marathons. The race was number two in a three marathons in three weeks and I felt it, too. Things were going good. I was taking it easy and hanging with the 3:50 pace team. Then at mile 21...OUCH! I got some serious cramps in my legs. Think it was a carry over of the YUT-C 50K the week before. I was reduced to walking about 2 miles while I got things back under control and took it in very slowly. Oh well, I asked for this one. I told myself this is good training for the JFK50 in November.
All in all it was a great day. The weather was nice. And even though this is a tough course, the support it awesome. The whole town comes out to see and cheer everyone on.
