I did my first marathon in OKC Sunday. I finished in 3:32:31 which met my goal.
I was on track for a 3:22:30 or so at half, a 3:25:30 or so at the 20 mile mark and then burnt down at mile 22. I am looking forward to doing another one but it wont be before fall.
I was a great event and a very humbling experience. There were people pushing people in wheelchairs and firemen in full gear running the half marathon.
My wife said it took 30 minutes to get all of the runners across the start line. The full marathon, half marathon and 5K had over 25,000 runners combined.
Here is what the starting line looked like from where I started. It took 1 minute to get to the start so there was another 29 minutes worth of people behind me.
