Marine Corps Marathon

Posted Apr 17 2009 12:30am
3:21:01
Avg Pace: 7:39
Distance: 26.23 miles

Quick update from the iPhone since I don't have laptop access.

This marathon is absolutely spectacular from start to finish. The image of the morning fog on the Potomac will remain with me forever.

In a nutshell, I ran spot-on 7:36 pace until Mile 21 and then I hung on for dear life. According to the Garmin above, I ended with a 7:39 average pace and final time of 3:21:01. However, it took me a couple of secs to stop my watch at the finish. Right now, the official results have me at 3:23:05, but I'm hoping it's the unadjusted time. Either way, I still had a fantastic day and major PR from my previous 3:29.

Plus, the topper of the day is Shawn who blasted a 4:17 First Time marathon!!! He even ran a great negative split.

Overall, perfect day, weather and results. I highly recommend this race if you get the chance!

P.S. I did update some photos to Facebook. If you're a member, come be my friend!
