    I got so wrapped up in NYCM this fall that I forgot about this thread.  Disapprove

     

    Jons3116 and Jedigunnie26.2, how's you do this weekend?  I think the weather cooperated at both races.  Hoping we got our final graduates for 2013...

      Sorry, I forgot about this thread too.  My race didn't go well; weather wasn't bad, but not great.  Surprisingly cold heavy rain at times.  First 17-18 miles went to plan, but I think my super heavy taper hurt me.  I had a slight calf strain about 3 weeks out, so I really took it light until the race.  In retrospect I should have adjusted my plan a bit, but I figured I didn't have anything to lose by trying.  Ended up walking about 1-2 minutes each of the last 6 miles, finished around 3:47, which is still my second fastest marathon.  but this is the first marathon i ever ran that was not an improvement over the one before it.  disappointing, but it happens I guess.
