Marathon #2 Results

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.  


Guess My Time, Win A Prize!

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.
I honestly don’t know what I’ll give away, but I work at a sporting goods store so you can guess where it’ll come from!

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!
