Lisbon Marathon

Today was a bit disappointing! I have run 38 marathons in the last few years but this one turned out to be too much for me. I was last, which is unusual for me even though I am always rather slow. The race officials made me stop at mile 16 even though I still had plenty of time to finish. It was quite warm by my standards and I was likely experiencing a bit of heat exhaustion. Maybe I'll give this one a try next year.

So after a good rest tonight I will continue through Lisbon, heading north along the river towards Santiago de Compostela.
