Conquer the Cove trail marathon 4:47, June 3rd, 2012. My very first marathon! Had an amazing time. The weather at the start was perfect (55 degrees), beautiful start at Loch Haven Lake, and the course was amazing. I did most of my training on Mill Mountain here and felt that my training runs were more difficult than the actual couse terrain— that is up until Mile 18 with a huge never-ending climb. But after that the rest of the course was downhill, though by then my legs were exhausted. Feel so excited to have finally completed the elusive marathon (after attempting multiple times only to be injured in the weeks before the race) but leaves me thinking what next… :)
