Done with Marine Corps Marathon!

Unfortunately I managed to lose my pacer Dave at mile 5 today!! But he did fine without me and nearly equalled his time from last year (when he didn't lose time in the first five miles helping this slower runner). I got nearly a half-hour marathon PR so I'm pleased, even though it wasn't the sub-5 I had wished for, and I ran a 23+ minute positive split. Maybe next time!! But I did beat him on age-grade. :-)

So I hit #4 and #5 of my 6 goals (about a 29-minute marathon PR and about 54 minutes faster than my previous MCM). Not sure I was exactly smiling at the finish, I was beat! But I did finish upright.

Details to follow in a day or two, after sleep and of course, downloading my Garmin data! Thanks for checking in on me!
