Sacramento Marathon, Sacramento, CA. 10-03-82
3:19:27 - Marathon #2
A few days after my 1st marathon when the pain and soreness in my legs disappeared and the mental anguish faded (somewhat like child birth) I began to think that if I trained harder and ran smarter I could run a faster marathon. Thus 2 weeks later I ran my 2nd marathon and dropped 9 min off my finish time. I didn't know that you weren't supoosed to run marathons so close together? I realized right then I was addicted to the thrill and challenge of running marathons. I did not yet realize it would become an obsession!
