Space Coast Marathon and Half RECAP

November 29, 2020: I think that this race could’ve been more physically distanced, however I ran with my buff in place for the first three miles as the running field became less dense. I became dehydrated around the sixth mile (the temps were likely in the low 70F°s). Foot cramps started to slow me down because I forgot to take my medicine. I had to walk a couple times, but pushed through and ensured I got to finish strong. The South Course is mainly flat with a few curves and few rolling elevations with a beautiful waterfront view. The sunrise was amazing. I wanted to take pics, but forced myself to not stop. I still ran a decent time and would’ve cracked the two hours had it not been for those challenges. Normally I travel alone during my races to avoid someone creating a distraction in my flow. Grrr! If I run this one again, perhaps I’ll try the North Course route.
