I really have no idea how I placed in this. Went out and ran with my dad for his 1st ever race! He did great! Really proud of him. To come off the couch and do this at his age is incredible.

I was really impressed with security here. Snipers on the roof tops, SWAT teams with AR-15's and full gear around the start line and along the course! It was really a HUGE FU to terrorism in my opinion. I'm really sad this is what the world has come to, however, I'm really glad the good ol' US of A has the resources to keep us as safe as possible and show terrorism we have the ability to shut them down! At the start the police helicopter buzzed the starting line with sirens blaring. I couldn't help to shed a tear of joy/pain. Pain enlight of what happened in Boston, but joy in the country I live in that we have the resources to do something about it and show that they can't keep us down!
