And I knew there was a big climb in the beginning. What I didn't expect was it to be SOOOOOOO painful. Yes, I don't remember being in that much pain (maybe in one of my marathons when I cramped up) But during the climb my achilles and calves were hurting so bad I was near tears. I would make it 15-20 steps or so, and I would have to step over to the side and take a breather and try to stretch. And then continue again for another 15-20 steps before I would have to stop again.
Had this been a road race, and a way 'out', I'm pretty sure that at this point I would have taken it. Yes, for me personally, it was that tough, and I was in that much pain.
