Crappy race, but fun day. This was a disappointment, but I am glad I dealt with it well. I was super pumped after warm-up and when the race was about to start, and I felt great. I held my goal pace until mile 6-ish, and a pervading sick stomach feeling just wouldn't shake off. I felt myself starting to drag at that point, and I knew I was pushing myself too hard at that point to keep on a good pace. I decided to ease off and see if my stomach could figure itself out, and it never did! I suspect this race would've ended with fire and brimstone had I kept trying to keep a race pace. So yeah...from mile 7 to the end I gave a good jog. I felt a slight urge to pick up the pace when the 1:40 pacer and all his followers passed me, but just decided to roll into the finish line instead. Happy to say that I finished without too much stomach discomfort, and that I still haven't dropped out of or walked a half marathon. The rest of the day my stomach felt uneasy, and some of my family members who I've been hanging out with this weekend have bigger stomach issues currently, so I probably have something.
