The following week, last Saturday, I ran my (and Nome's) first official unoffical Cape Nome marathon set up by a local organizer. It was (again) wet, some rain and a fair amount of slippery mud. I finished in 3:16 with an average HR of 156 bpm without much variation. I felt like the attempt was solid though some muddy sliding tweaked my knee that caused discomfort from mile 14 till mile 18 and then, voila, dissappeared. Knee pain is funny like that. There were 3 other brave souls on the full but the half was much more popular Overall a fun event that hopefully will continue annually.
Not sure what's next....
