Ellerbe Springs Marathon - Ellerbe NC

I should have posted this a while ago - no excuses, I am a bad blogger.

The Ellerbe Spring Marathon, another Mangum Track Club event, and just like every Mangum race/run I have done, this one was a lot of fun, and as usual, I enjoyed the run and the great company.

About the course - you know, I can't think of any flat parts, there were certainly a lot of hills, and I took  to be good 'power walking' practice.

I managed to negative split the race, which I don't think I have ever done before in any distance, 2:31 in the first half, and finished in 4:58. My third fastest marathon time.

A special thank you to the Dummars - the RD's, MTC and all the special volunteers who came out to cheer us on.

I'll be back  next year.
