BOSTON 13.1 MARATHON SERIES 2010
Early in the race...I'm still smirking...
Feeling good at mile 10
Still flying...yeah, I'm a goofball.
Red-lining the engine with about a mile to go
Just catching the guy I had been chasing for the last 1/4 mile
Official Time - 1:33:47 - 41st of 2682 finishers, 4th of 194 men in their 40's
BOSTON RUN TO REMEMBER HALF MARATHON 2010
PROVIDENCE MARATHON 2010
It all started rather pleasantly...60°, light, cool breeze
I was waving at the photographers and onlookers...
Yes, it was all rather nice...
But then the sun decided to come out...
...and pushed the temperature up to 85°
plus, running along the water brought the humidity up too...
things were getting less fun...
You can see the pain on the face...a moment of "What the Frak am I doing here?"
But then I saw the finish line
Found a burst of energy
...and finished strong...albeit with sloppy form...3:30:11...a new PR!!! (2nd in 13 days)
BOSTON MARATHON 2010
My view looking for the starting line...it's over the hill
My view behind me at the start...I was one of the last starters
Somewhere around mile 10
Taking on the Newton Hills
A quick hello to the family around mile 19 or 20
My #1 fan...the older daughter
There the CITGO sign! Only 1 more mile to go...what's that? 1.2? Oh crap!
Crossing the finish line...3:32:05...11:06 short of a BQ, but a 22+ minute PR!
Done! Wait til next year! Bring on Providence in 13 days...
EASTERN STATES 20 2010
No photographers and I forgot to ask the family to take some pictures, so imagine a beautiful, sunny Maine and New Hampshire day with a 15 mph headwind for 80% of the race.
SUPER SUNDAY 10K 2010
Making a move early
Looking for a passing lane
In a zone
The only shot of me at the finish...I'm way back there. PR: 39:29
CHILLY HALF MARATHON 2009
Finding a groove
Waving to the family
Looking to finish strong...1.1 to go!
MANCHESTER CITY MARATHON 2009
Starting to feel the "wall" at around 14
Trying to stay upbeat at 24
Trying to smile for the wife and kids at 24.5...I was spent!!!
I'm gonna finish this thing dammit!
The finish line is right around the corner!!!
Gotta get in under 3:55!!!
Happy to be done! 1st marathon - 3:54:04
