Lows: Miles 9-12 (that damned double hill stymies me year after year); The humidity (don’t be mislead about this being files under “Lows,” it was high, and that was a low); Worst blisters and toe damage I’ve ever suffered (saved you the pics. Could sure go for a refund on my Valentine’s Day pedi — what a waste); and of course not getting the PR (or even in the neighborhood of my better times).

Highs: Awesome 100m sprint to the finish (at least keeping up appearances); adding to my Austin medal collection; and recovering with a House of Cards binge.
