Marathon #2 done! 5:11:29 chip/5:14:09 clock. Had I not had to stop for a total of 8 minutes in pit stops I would have PR’d with 5:03:25. You guess how I’m feeling right now… it’s going to take a couple of days to decide that today was okay after all.
On the other hand, Colin finished with in 3:52:53! He achieved a HUGE PR, beating his old time by 19 minutes and 20 seconds!
Now to decompress with grilled cheese, chardonnay, neopolitan ice cream and a viewing of Run Fatboy Run.
Congrats to Neil Z. for being closest to my time! Send me your address to running42km[dot]blog@gmail[dot]com and I’ll send out your prize when I decide what it will be.
Full race report in a couple of days.
Race day is tomorrow! Still haven’t freaked out, but hopefully it won’t go down like it did in October. As my sister-in-law would say, “WOOSA.”
So, I thought it would be fun to see if any one can guess my finish time. The only goal I have is to beat my previous time of 5:07:18. Click here to see the race report from my first marathon.
Things to consider:
- This is my second marathon (I know what to expect).
- I know the route really well.
- I’ve trained about the same as last time (3-4 runs/week).
- Weather should be good.
- My best half marathon time is 2:11:38, but it was last June.
The person closest to my CHIP TIME will win! Entries will be accepted until race start, 7:30am PST Sunday. Winner will be announced whenever I can muster up the energy to turn on the computer and figure it all out!
