I’m sad to report that marathon #3 ended up being a disaster, and a personal worst time for me.
I was so ready for this race. Unfortunately, my stomach had other plans for me.

It took me a while to get this race recap up.

They also finally posted the Bike to the Beach Century ride pictures. If you’re keeping tabs [...]
