Run Charleviox 26.2

In terms of course beauty and diversity this race earns a solid F.  It was an out-and-back marathon TWICE.  There's nothing like watching the elite athletes blow by you two separate times.

I can't be too harsh because this was the first running of the marathon and while improvements can (and should) be made, the administration was handled very well.

This races was more of a focus on heart rate training.  I've been neglecting my heart rate which is exactly the wrong thing to do.  So now I'm stuck running marathons much slower than I can so I can strengthen my heart.  It's really tough to hold myself back but in the long run it will pay off big.
