My dad rode his bike alongside me (Fyffe-style) with water and carbs which I took regularly (non-Fyffe-style, about every 3 miles, alternating pieces of stinger waffles and stinger gels/gu chomps) - gave me a good sense of how much i'll need to take in at the marathon  - at least 500 calories; started around my parents' circle then out to asbury to highland to goodhue to waldingfield to 1a to lakemans to fellows to candlewood to chebacco (ipswich) to belcher to story st in essex onto 8k course through center of essex past woodman's (10 miles) toward manchester on western ave/school st/ to pine st/chebacco (hamilton) to essex street to larch row to 1a to perkins to porter/union to asbury to porter ln and around my parents' block twice at the end. Mile splits: (6:36.9; 6:36.8; 6:21.6; 6:31.6; 6:28; 6:22.6; 6:23.9; 6:32.8; 6:22.8; 6:04.4; 6:07.3; 6:13.9; 6:10.5; 6:12.9; 6:21.5; 6:19.9; 6:21.3; 6:24.9; 6:22.6; 6:42.6 (mile 20 when I summarized once a runner for my dad and ended up talking the whole mile); 6:02.8; 6:02.3; 5:50.4; 5:52.4; 35.2 sec for last .12 (5:06.3 pace)

Unbelievable! This was an answered prayer! I've been feeling flat this week (thurs. and sat. especially) and this was just amazing to be able to do this today! Thank you, God! (2:32:04 - 6:18 pace)
