I will echo what the others said above. Stomach issues are crippling. I went for an EZ run last week, had GI issues and was in more pain that in some races.<br><br>
Also an important point, at least for me, is that once you get close to race pace - even if you are running slower than your planned or normal race pace, after a short while, becomes race pace. You see this even with elite runners where they run a slow, tactical race for a while, then someone jumps out to the lead, and the rest struggle to keep up - even though the faster pace is one they could theoretically run. In short, when you're racing and you're close to race pace, I think the effort level is the same.<br><br>
Plus you trained through it. That's a whole 'nother story.<br><br>
And I never would have guessed you were twins. You look 5 years younger easy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">
