Marathon or longer #99, and #35 for the year at the Des Moines Marathon. It seems Kansas City took a bigger bite out of me than I had anticipated. The goal was 4:15, but 4:32 is what I turned in. I’m not happy with it, but I gave it what I had. I’ll have to make it work. 62 and foggy, I found myself drenched within the first few miles. I experimented with tailwind on this race, no significant difference from gu but for slight gassiness. The folks I saw but forgot to take a picture of (Tim Mullican, Ed Childress, Cade Remsberg, Severin family) Fun fact: 1970 Nobel Peace Prize Winner Norman Borlaug, a native Iowan, developed a high-yield wheat strain responsible for saving a billion plus lives from starvation. He helped to create the World Food Prize in Des Moines, which recognizes achievements in agricultural innovation.
