Goobler Grind...Marathon #70

I finished the Gobbler Grind yesterday in 5:10:16, bringing my marathon total to 70. The ankle held up again. I felt it off and on and it is a little swollen again today, but it will get 2 weeks to heal up before South Carolina. It was a great day to run. The weather can be unpredictable for this one, so I signed up for it on Friday when I was relatively certain it would not be 33 degrees and sleeting......it was in the 30's for the start and in the 50's for the finish. I ran the first 1/2 at an easy pace and hit the 13.1 at 2:17 or so and then I settled into a run one song, walk one song for the back half to try to keep the pounding on my ankle down a bit. I hope my good weather luck continues for South Carolina and the Goofy Challenge.
