|Yay! Finish Line!|
This was my 80th marathon and my 8th barefoot marathon so all in all, a pretty good milestone. I came in 2177th overall at 4:15 even (again, happy to not need the sub 4). The rest of the month I have pretty much taken it easy, although the middle week I did get in almost 40 miles and enjoyed the first slightly snowy run on Nov. 19th. Since then I've been nursing a bit of TOFP (Top Of Foot Pain), which you barefooters know is usually very bad news. However, this seems to sort of be a phantom pain which is moving around a little so I am not overly alarmed at this point. Still, it is good to be able to just run "a little bit" each day and not overdo the miles, as I continue to recover from these two relatively rough marathons.
I'm getting psyched for my upcoming Disney Marathon in about 5 weeks and will really enjoy finally finishing off the 50 Sub 4 quest if successful. This will mean that the last 5 states (some of the hardest) were repeated to not only get the times under 4 hours, but also to do them barefoot. I'll be ready for a good long rest after that!
Enjoy the holidays!
November Mileage = 108.5 miles
