I want to. I really do. I've been training for it, it's been my goal race, and now due to work conflicts, I may miss it.

Great race though!

STUCK - that I will be doing!

For those that don't know, Sun @ 6:30. The Birmingham Track Club is going to lead a group run along the Mercedes course. They'll be pacers out from 8min/mi on up....

They're doing the half and the full.

I'm doing the half!

I'm in for the half.  Awesome on doing the full!

Probably not doing the warmup.  Doing the Brenda Ladun 8k thing as a warmup race Saturday, though.

Who would want to do the bloody full three weeks before doing the full again?  Nutcases, those full marathon runners are!

How's about a BT meetup of sorts?

I'm racing it and will get my bib on Sat. Post up your number and we'll be on the lookout.

Also, as a side note, I'll probably be mingling around the ironman steel worker, just to the right of Boutwell around 6:30, and then I'm heading to the corrals.

It'd be good to see some fellow BTers too!

I will be there, too.  If someone has a mind to bring a few megawatt space heater I'd be greatly appreciative. 

It's gonna be nippy - like 32 at the start?   Brrrrr....

Racer #1625

Looks like the temps are barely going to break freezing tomorrow. Should be quite nice!

Superb - set a 10k, 10mile, and half marathon PR in the same race.  Good to hear yours went well, too.

It was alright. I set a half marathon PR but definitely didn't hit my goal time and am quite disappointed in it.

What a bummer.

I'm sure my sickness didn't help, but I'm still disappointed in my race day performance...

my run was up and down. i finished at 4:00:10 but was about 30 minutes off my goal. i sailed along until mile 19 when the cramps set in. i ended up run/walking the last part of the race. missing the 2 long runs in the last month of training, due to injury, did me in i am pretty sure. i think if i had been able to make those i would have been good. 

that said, it was my 1st marathon and i am not going to be too upset about it.

now onto my first tri's.

There is a 32 mile tri-folk ride this Sat. if you're in the mood for that.  Should be pretty nice weather.  Ride is labeled as easy and social to get back into things.  LostSheep and I are planning on riding.  After all this running I'm dying to get on the bike.
