    Mission accomplished in Chicago. 2:55:12.

     

    I posted a report in my log.

     

    Nice job. You had a solid three month block leading in and your result is a nice reward for all that work.

      great race (and report!).  outstanding finish!

        Congratulations B-Plus.  Very nice finish.

          Ran my 3rd marathon this year. This time it was Chicago. Very hard day for me, still PR-ed, but first time in 7 marathons didn't have that joyful feeling at the end. In any case, it is a PR - unofficial time is 2:53:58, definitely some satisfaction out of that fact.

            Congrats Cal. I'm going to check that out.

             

            Thanks X, lag, and ken. I'm still super excited!!

              Where do I sign up for next year's thread?  I need to plan a race before Lagwagon beats  me to the line with a sub-3.

                Look like you were pretty darn close to your 3:03:30 goal -- nice racing!!!

                  almost made it:  3:01:29.   I was right on target, 3 strides behind the 3:00 pace group leader until we hit the hill on fifth ave.  the hill completely kicked my ass.  still, very happy in a tough race.

                   

                  2014 will be the year, for sure.

                    I am up this weekend at California International and am going to revise my goal to 2:45.

                     

                    My training has been going well and I started working with a coach in September. My first sub-3 was in June and I currently have the slowest sub-3 of the year, so hopefully I can move up the ranks a little bit.

                      Year's not over tho...

                       

                      Yes it is. I tried a couple times and had to settle for consolation prizes. Less than 7 weeks till my first attempt of the new year. I'll just keep banging my head against that wall until I break through it.

                        a serious improvement from June, but just short of my goal.
