Drove home from Barstow hotel after driving there from magic mountain.  Listened to conference    Had Troy and girls drop me off at Provo city center temple and I ran home first going to wills canyon stop and up on to canal path. 14.75 miles.  8:38 avg    Stop watch.  Did 10 x 2 min at LT with two min easy.  One min half marathon and said forget this. I need to get home in one good piece.   Stopped at wills pit stop and 1100 north.  And a couple brief moments to catch my breath during speed.  Basically first mile I was wondering if I could make it with tired fluid filled vacation legs and stagnant in car 7 hours legs.  Weather perfect.  A little chilly at end and a breeze as sun went down but before that perfect.

320 wake up.  Bus from mcc hotel. To start.  430 am.  Knew it would be painful.  And it was.   At mile 8 quite bad zapping sciatic pain that made me yell out like I was on fire periodically.   Had ru just keep at a pace where my leg could not turn over quickly and aggravating it more. Which was 8:02  didn’t look at watch afyer the point of ridiculousness. So didn’t know pace except mike 11 being 8:21. Avg pace 7:41.  Course long but I ran poor tangents.  I didn’t notice the heat. May others talked a lot of it.  I am sure marathon was brutal at end as high of day was 100.  First 50/54 year old.  That was a shocker.  Next runner 50/54 was 30 seconds behind. I was behind her until mike 12 in virtual running.  I was 5 min behind clock.  The pace ws si easy. Never out of breath. I had so much speed left in me from my training.  The leg was not runnable. Quite sure 1 percent of population would be as insane as me  99 percent would never have got dressed in the am to run.  It is pretty bad back and sciatica and hamstring pull from it all
