5 easy in a town not to far from Magic Mountain where there are lots of horse shows and horse hangers instead of sidewalks.  Hotel 0.2 miles from bike trail.  Easy pace.  8:29 avg.  magic mountain.  phone took a turn on the twisted colossus and fell to its demise.  Well employees found it and are sending it to me.  Not sure of condition just said "Congratulations we found your item".  So it is being mailed to me.  LOL.  Dead or alive I know.  It will be either a Christmas Miracle or a Haunting Disaster.

pure rain from drop off from my husband.  wore a thin rain poncho whole race.  felt great except at mile 16 pelvis inflammatory disorder kicked in and I had to slow to 8:50-9 pace from my 8:33 avg before then.  Quite enjoyed the run in the rain. Was not cold and the wind was just more comedy to the day.  Three gus in race. Alternated water and gatorade skipped a couple because I had to pee often. Stopped twice before 10 k to porta potties.  Probabaly 30-45 seconds each.  Just hit a weird spot at mile 25 before that I was all expecting a smiling finish but I nearly blacked out from dizziness.  To the tent I went for 15 minutes for an ekg. At first my heart rate was high and my BP was too (for me 140/85).  Felt better with salty chips and chicken broth.  Then walked the finishers lane at a lame pace of 30 min/mile because my pelvis was so unstable.  MRI last June showed significant sclerosing and inflammatory response.   So getting old.  1:50:24 first half *8:25.6 avg.  1:59:48 second half *9:08.7 avg.  Overall 3:50:12  Garmin had me 0.31 miles long for porta potties and bad tangents.  My real avg was 8:41.  My Boston is 26.2 miles avg was 8:47.    Last mile was a 10:16 from my slowest before that being 9:16.  The dizziness cost me at least a minute.  Loved having my husband and cousins there to chere me on!! so awesome!!!
