ericcooper - 2010-10-13 9:11 AM Well, the first wave goes off at 7am, so how about 6:30?  I'll have my Cedar Point Rev3 finisher shirt on.

Spoken like a true IRONMAN!! 

Hey Coop, when are you heading to the Expo?


Wink

I'm heading down there today.  I'll probably take off a little early from work so I can beat some of the rush hour traffic.

I waited by Cobo Joe's from 6-6:30 then I got paranoid I wouldn't have time to and get my spot so I bailed.  I'm really sorry everyone.  I was happy I did it beacue the line at the pora hell was huge.  
How did everyone do?
I sucked.  I had to walk during my half marathon.........I wanted to be under 2 hours, but my lack of training is my only excuse.  I ran 2:04 and some change.  The weather was great, but I should not have worn a long sleeve shirt.  
I hope everyone else did great.  Maybe I'll see you on Halloween.   I promise I'll wait longer that day wherever we choose to meet.

I had the learning experience of a lifetime to say the least.  My goal was 3:30 and I started in the 3:30 pace group.  It quickly turned into a porta-potty relay.  I had to modif my entire game plan around mile 16.  By 18 all my legs muscles started to cramp up.  I walked all of Bell Isle until after the bridge when a friend caught up and she convinced me to run with her.  We struggled to the finish and eventually made it!  26.2!

I was a bit late because of  poop issues at the hotel,  I know TMI. I ran a 4:19:53 marathon. Not bad for my first and I'm an old fart. I had to yell "Go Green" at the last few water stations. I was not sure which one was the right one. Each time I had to explain myself. I had fun! Laughing

If you sucked then I did right along with you Chris. Worst of my three halves ever completed - by six minutes! I also walked and a lot, like every half mile for like 30 sec from mile 9 to the finish. 1:56 and some change. Too much drinking and eating and a lack of training for me. One long run a week and playing soccer once a week just didnt cut it. Well maybe I can use this as some motivation.

1:56 with little training and lots of drinking?  I think I need to start drinking more!  Good show.

Glad to hear I wasn't alone.  Maybe next time we'll both train more and do better.  Man that tunnel was a hot sauna.  Like a fool I had stuck my numner to a long sleeve shirt I couldn't shed.  Oh well.  Lessons learned.  I'm so sore today going up and down stairs is a long ordeal. 
Anyone hear about the lady who is in critical condition?  They said she passed out at mile 2 and the paramedics revived her and she is now struggling to stay alive.  My thoughts are with her family.

Great Job everyone.  I really struggled out there, came it a 4:34.  Not so happy with the time, but it was definetly a learning experience.  My body is really hating me this morning.  My foot feels like if I cut it off, it would feel better.

RunnerGirl, loved the tutu and tiara, i'm going to target to get an orange one for halloween!

Sounds like a lot of of us were unhappy with how we did - count me in that group.  I ran the half at just a hair below 1:52.  I was target for my goal pace of 8:00 per mile at the start of the tunnel and fell apart after climbing the hill out of the tunnel.  It was a beautiful day and if there is one positive to my run I finally conquered getting the water at the aid station while in stride and drinking without a huge mess while running.

Quick question - everything I read said the race started at 7:15....when did they switch it to 7:00?  My brother-in-law and I started further back than we hoped because we were trying to get in the corral to late for the adjusted start time.

She was right behind kathmich and I when she went down. I heard her sort of make a loud noise as she was falling and turned around. I saw her fall and it looked like she was having a seizure. We all called for medical help. Kl and I thought of her often throughout the race and really hoped she was ok. She looked young...20's or 30's. I'll be thinking of her and her family.

4:41 and I am happy.  I finish!

I slept 14 hrs last night and I have difficulty walking this morning.  Heck... I have difficulty walking since I cross the finish line! 

I still not sure how I can speed up at 23 mile mark and spin at 200yard.

Dianne said she is 53...first marathon.  Wonder what would cause someone to go down like that so early in the race.  She's also in my thoughts.

There is an interesting article on MSNBC.com today about the dangers of Ibuprofen use before and during running/endurance events.  We all know we shouldn't mix the two...aparently it is a potentially deadly cocktail.  Besides the kidney related issues it also increases blood pressure and in some cases could result in heart stress or more.  I kave no idea why the woman collapsed yesterday and I hope that ultimately she recovers...but as we see events like this I think we should also make sure we are training and competing in a healthy fashion.

I'll have to look that up. I didn't know it was bad. I took 800 mg of ibuprofen. 200 before and 600 during. Plus some Tylenol. And I have high blood pressure to start with.
happy with my 4:19 time. Smile

Dan, you should really run that by a dr. That's way too stressful on your kidneys which are stressed during exercise anyway.

I think this is the article that was referred to:

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/37341523/ns/health-pain_center

In summary: "experts say the benefits of popping even one pill before a 10K don't outweigh the risks."
