"If on marathon day the spectators are wearing shorts and t-shirts it is going to be a hard day
I trained with these people for 100's and 100's of miles. They all did great!! I could tell a story about each, but let them start their own blog right?? You know my blog whoreness will read it right?? How is whoreness not a word??
Anyway it was great. I had Jerry on pace, but after about mile 13 the sun and heat were taking their toll. I pulled off at mile 15. I told Alan Jerry won't get 3:35 probably 3:50. Jerry got 3:49 and some change.
My day 15 miles @ 8:12 pace. Glad I didn't have to run 26.2. My pace would have dropped dramatically. I didn't know how Jerry felt, so wanted to make sure I kept on pace as long as I could. He was falling back between 14 and 15 a bit, so I knew he felt like me. :) He went on for another 11+ miles. Like I said glad it wasn't me.
I was proud of them all!!! They are great!!!
A lot of celebrating afterwards. I drank 478 beers I think, and had nothing to drink at the Harju's party, so drank Jameson on the rocks, it is what my brother brought. Felt a little sluggish first thing this morning, but am fine now.
It was a great day!!! :)
Love you all!!
Have a great day!!!! :)
p.s. half marathon 1:47:30. 1:04 off a P.R. :)
