27) Atlantic City Marathon, Atlantic City, NJ, 23rd October 2016


[To expand]

Hadn’t planned to do this one but received a discount code a week before the event. My wife was out of town, I’d never been to Atlantic City and I managed to find a cheap hotel room, so how could I refuse!

Drove up the day before. Registered.

Nice race, first part through North of AC, then along boardwalk, two loops then boardwalk to finish. Very windy on way out on loops, tough.

cramping at mile 22. walked a bit then picked up running. Finished strong. 

Finished in 3:08:16.

Learning points

Two sub 3:10 marathons within a month suggests I could run quicker with a focused training program and taper to a goal race. Maybe Boston!
