2014 Carlsbad Marathon

Well no pictures of this adventure but I had a great run at Carlsbad this weekend breaking my personal best marathon time finishing the race in 2:59:32 beating my previous best time by 4 seconds which was at California International Marathon in 2009. The last time I ran Carlsbad in 2011 I ran it in 3:06:05.

I dug deep and pushed hard the whole race keeping a good sub 3 hour pace. As all marathons the last 6 miles was brutal and a test of mind over body to continue to achieve under 6:50 per mile. I was happy to see my wife and kids at the finish line.

First race of the year and I look forward to the upcoming triathlon season. I placed 4th in my age group and 27th overall.
