     The pain that hurts the worse is the imagined pain. One of the most difficult arts of racing is learning to ignore the imagined pain and just live with the present pain (which is always bearable.) - Jeff

      Very excited today.  I did it.  I trained hard these last 18 weeks specifically for a sub-4 finish.  My first marathon last year (CIM), I struggled the last 6 miles and finished 4:13.  This year I followed Pfitzinger's 18/55 plan, did core strength training 3 days a week, and leg strength training 2 days a week and had myself ready.

       

      Unofficial finish at yesterday's CIM of 3:51:01.  Best part of it, I ran the entire thing.  Last year I had to stop multiple times.  This year, I just kept pushing.  All aspects of the training played a part in my finish.
