Marine Corps Marathon

Day 669 - October 31, 2010

It was a beautiful morning for the marathon today. I'll write more later, but wanted to share that I finished, I qualified for Boston, but I did not break 3 hours.

Official time was 3 hours, 11 minutes, and 32 seconds. There are a lot of great stories I hope to share when I've had a chance to recover. I had a great first half and was still doing well at 16 miles. I started to cramp up a bit at 17, but fought it off until Mile 19. Then the wheels fell off - hamstrings cramped up and it really slowed me down. But, I finished. I even set a PR - my previous best marathon was a 3:31. For 2010 - I pulled off the trifecta - PRs in the 10 mile, half marathon and full marathon.
