Way to rock it ,  Wendy!!

Very impressive!!!! GREAT JOB!

Hey Stu, I have a new hero.

Wendy, I told you about that subtle ski slope at the beginning, Many a great runner has fallen victim.

Wow 3:25! Holy crap that is good, what were you shooting?

P.S. What did you think of the color of jackets this year?

I get very worried about posssible heart issues when someone tells me they are having pain down their arm. Did you have the doctor check you out?

James--appreciate your concern, but I'm pretty sure it's not my heart. The pain is in my right arm and is movement specific. I walk around, run, do a bunch of stuff without any pain at all. It's like I'm perfectly fine. But if I reach my right arm to the left across my chest or use my right arm to reach behind my back to tuck in shirt, the pain shoots right down my arm. I don't believe that's how heart issues work...the pain is more constant (like a headache).

Fortunately, the pain has really abated over the last two days. On Sunday the pain was so bad I was worried that my tri season was in jeopardy. Today I'm ready to jump back into training. Crazy.

Wow, Wendy! Really great effort. "Salvaged" and "3:25" are words that don't go together.

For what its worth, I'm down in Florida for meetings with a key customer. He ran Boston last year and this year as well. He's a pretty solid runner for age 59. Last year he ran 3:04....this year 3:27. He said he walked for the first time ever in the race because he was just completely spent. He also said there were seven runners in Boston from his club here in Lakeland and every single one of them finished slower than anticipated. For whatever reason, it appears that it was a slower race.

Regardless, nice job and congratulations!

Steve

PS--I've swore I'll never do another marathon in the last four miles of EVERY marathon I've run.

You probably know this, but... Doing the PT for rotator-cuff surgery recovery daily can help prevent repeat injuries. When I remember this, and DO them 3-4 times a week minimum, my shoulder is fine. If I don't.. shooting pains.

I was shooting for a 3:20 and after all the people that I heard struggled, I consider myself lucky! It was really warm - 70 degrees at the end. I was on pace for a 3:18 through 19 miles when the wheels came off. I think the only people that had great races were Meb and Rita Jeptoo! Yay Meb!

The color of the jackets were interesting. VERY bright! I didn't buy one because I'm holding out for an Ironman jacket!

I didn’t used to like to run slow. You begin to recalibrate your needs and wants and if-only you could jog an easy two miles, three times per week. Running is a gift.
