Surprisingly – especially to me – my hammy held up through the entire marathon. The bad part of this was that I was not as mentally prepared to battle the battle I had in store. I figured it would be a battle of patience, limping and cursing. Instead it was a typical marathon battle of patience, cursing and ?s like – how much do I push it here, how much do I hold back, am I going to cramp up here, can I still limp in, etc…
Here’s the video of Jim and I finishing – pretty sweet move on Jim’s part – my legs would have buckled if I attempted his move.
