Rainy but Satisfying Marathon

Sunday, May 19, 2013

I'm Still in PA, so I'll write more from the comfort of home.

I finished the Run For The Red Marathon today. It rained the first 24 miles and was pea soup fog for the first six, but it was a good race. I think I'll do it again next year and see if I can do better.

During the race, I had a conversation with a woman running her 82nd marathon. She's run one in every state at least once.

When I told her this was my first, she said that If I could run this one, I could run any one because even though this race is fast, it is extremely difficult. I hope she was right. -Found her on FaceBook and sent a friend request. We'll see.

Here are my race stats:
