So in case you missed it, the Colfax Marathon did not go as expected. I went into it with a bad hip and just feeling pretty drained. I was over trained and drained. While it didn’t go great for me, the race itself was really great! So let’s get on with it…
The expo was awesome! They held it at the Wings Over the Rockies museum in Denver so there were planes everywhere which was really, really cool.They even had a to scaled X-Wing fighter!
Getting ready for marathon #11! Went to the #Colfax Marathon bib pick up and it was in the coolest location! Going to have to go back and check out the Wings Over the Rockies flight museum! They even had a 3/4 scale X Wing fighter! Too cool! #runchat #race #XWing #Marathon #planes #takeflight @runcolfax

Grabbed my packet, my beer wristband, and my tshirt and was on my way! The goodies were pretty respectable, nothing extraordinary but a snack bar and some other coupons and goodies.
I did my usual 2 mile shake out run which was harder than it should have been and hoped some rest and adrenaline would make race day primo!
The race was in Denver so Wookie and I drove down, he dropped me off near the start area. There weren’t clear directions for where exactly I should be dropped off so I ended up walking a bit further, but it’s okay. It helped me to shake out my nerves a bit.
