12/28/13 – 20 miles
This one almost did me in. When I got back home, my body felt just torn up. I ran out of Powerade with five miles to go, which made things even worse. I started getting dizzy when I was taking off my sneakers outside the front door. Then my stomach felt awful for most of the day. Damn! This helped me decide for sure that this will be my last marathon. The training leading up to these races is too much, and too lengthy. Oh well, UFC 168 is this evening, so that should take my mind off of all of the aches and pains. 24 days until the marathon.
