One word describes the challenge of today's marathon: altitude
It was a great course, picturesque with mountains and countryside. A bit hilly but not too bad. And the weather was cool and sunny. A great race.
But, I failed to anticipate the change in altitude which certainly presented a challenge in breathing. In the end, I finished in 1:49.
This concludes half marathon/state #31. Up next is Fargo, North Dakota.
More pics up later today.
