    Muddling through

      2:59:50 before chip timing existed, estimated I lost a minute at the start

      2:54:56 lost less than 10 seconds at that one

      2014 Goals: Run first trail ultra, first 100K, and see what I can do in a 24-Hour race

          In my book 3:59:55 rounds to 3:60 Smile.    I can see why you want to keep the 'seconds'!!

           

          This is why I truncated my times.  I wanted to keep my PR 2:59:52 below three hours.

                Have only run 3 and they were all with in the last 16 months.

                I'm pretty sure that I can improve a bit.

                  3:11:00

                  Trivia question: The 3:11:00 was in 1994, and I was a 29-yr-old male. Did I miss qualifying for Boston by 1 minute, or by 1 second? (I hear there may have been a 59-second "grace period" or some such ...)
