*My right knee always starts hurting about mile 5. If I stop and take a 5 minute walk break, it eases up and I can start running another mile or two without any problems.
*I have found that walking breaks is the only way I'm going to successfully complete 26.2 miles. I feel like I'm cheating when I walk, and I know thats not the case. I just really hoped to RUN 26.2 miles. No one "walks a marathon". I'm not fast by any means. If I can keep my running between 11:00-12:00 pace, then my 14:30ish walk breaks don't bring down my overall pace too terribly bad. I just want to finish under 6 hours, thats my only goal. The clock runs for 8 hours but the streets are only closed off to traffic for 6. I just can't even fathom people who run 3-4 hour marathons. I'm jealous, I don't think I will ever, ever be that fast!
*The toe next to my big toe has been causing me some problems. I think it started out with cutting my nail too short, but now the nail is lifting off my toe and it feels bruised. Im going to the doctor at the end of the week
*I will be SO glad when the temperatures cool down and I don't have to run with the miserably hot sun beating down on me.
