    Hoping no sharks show up.

     

    Result = WIN!  Time was around 19:48. Not the strongest field ever assembled, but ~225 people, including a handful of triathletes capable of 1:35-ish HMs, and a couple high-school runners.  Felt really cool to compete, rather than racing for time.

            Great work Clive. Must feel awesome. Side note: I met joe Gibbs at the bojangles in huntersville one time. True story.

              Damn Clive. A 20 minute PR and a Win! You're tearing it up.

              2014 Goal: Run Monkey as my first marathon. Brilliant!

                17:30

                 

                I thought I was done racing this year too, but I put 17:30 as a goal back in January, and by Fuck that IS going down this year. (plus my kid's cub scout den is manning the water station, so I'm driving there anyway).

                 

                I've run 17:46, 17:42, 18:21 (blech), and 17:42 this year. Time to blow it out and put it to bed.

                 

                17:33, 2OA, PR

                 

                Windy as a mf'er out there. My kid's cub scout den was manning the water station, so I had to take a water. Sure that cost me the 3 stupid seconds for this goal, but I'd do it again to see that smile.

                        Very good, Kevin.   Especially the water stop.

                              Nice on the 17:33.  The water stop could definitely have cost you some seconds but ya did the right thing!  He was probably prouder than you can imagine to see his dad running 2nd.

                                Thanks. Yeah, he was happy, but he'd probably fit in here - I got a "so, why didn't you win?" at least once from him.

                                 

                                Oh, and official results came back at 17:35.
