3:23:45.   Pretty happy I finished.  I got significant symphisis pubis bone pain and right hamstring pain from mile 9 on.  Was going to quit. Lots of talking to myself about it.  No fueling issues. But I did have to use the bathroom twice before veyo. Mile 5 and 7 aid stations. 45 seconds to  one minute each. Imodium next time my friends told me. I never felt an adrenaline rush until maybe last seven miles.  I was at 7:51 avg and was able to avg 7:30 the last 7 miles.  And get my avg to 7:46 (7:44 my watch as I got 26.33 miles).  Hamstring only part of me hurting now.  Went to general women’s conference to watch Brooke sing    Lots of gas pain in lower stomach.  Barely ate after Marathon.  Took gu non caffeine as usual ( none entire race as usual) at miles 2/7/12/17/22   It was perfect  and alternated Powerade and water at stations  some times both   Passed a lot of runners last 7 miles. Half 1:42:57. Slowed even more to 30 k.  But picked it up as much as my right hamstring would let me til finish.  No heart rate issues   Not tired at all the entire run  just pain. 3:23:45  !  Sg #14   Going to get my core strengthened and my weight to 130 from 139.   Second half 1:40:48
