Well then ................. that was brutal. Gale warning. North wind 20 - 30. Periods of heavy rain & sleet (usually when running north). 42 degrees. Possibly the worst running weather I have ever experienced.
Definitely was one the hardest marathons I've ever run. I stuck with the pack of a pace group through about 16-17, trying to draft, but fell off at a water stop and it got ugly by mile 21. I nearly froze to death trying to walk into the wind back to the hotel afterwards (all of a block)
