I reread my post and it sounded like I nearly died on the course or had to walk or cried all the way to the finish. It wasn't THAT bad - I did enjoy seeing Charlotte, I liked the race atmosphere, and there were moments when i didn't want to die. I ran a slow 3:47:46 and I was disappointed with my time, but just a few months ago I would have been thrilled with it. And that time includes a long bathroom line and saving a fellow runner. So it didn't completely suck.
Sorry I insulted you, Thunder Road.
