Man you are fast, congrats!

I am so thrilled for you. I knew you would do well and you ran an amazing race. Congratulations. You worked so hard and you deserve the huge PR.
Smaller By The Day
That's amazing. That's a huge PR, and it looks like you were still really strong toward the end. After feeling a little beat up after a long training cycle, it has to feel good to have it pay off in such a big way. I think you'd be justified in taking a little bit of a recovery break, and just letting that shiny new PR soak in for a bit.

Holy crap what a great race you ran!! A negative split, a huge PR, and a sub 3:00...awesome, awesome, awesome! Especially since you were having such a difficult few weeks leading up to the race. Congratulations SIAR!!

Grats dude. It appears you executed perfectly, and I know that must be satisfying...tenfold for a marathon.
Has Broken Parts
I already congratulated you in the marathoners daily forum but wanted to post again. You have no idea how thrilled I am for you! I was thinking about you oten yesterday and kept checking my phone to see if either of you reported back. I live vicariously through you speedy runners. Your victories are my victories too!
Great job on this race. I mean WOW, you executed your plan perfectly! Your splits were really amazing. I did a little quick math and came up with the following variances between your fastest and slowest mile times.
Miles 01-05: 3 seconds ( I tossed out the first mile. It's 11 seconds if you count mile 1)
Miles 02-10: 8 seconds
Miles 10-15: 9 seconds
Miles 16-20: 9 seconds
Miles 20-26: 4 seconds
I bet it was great to have your Mom there for support. Even if you didn't see her at the second spot, just knowing that she was there supporting you must have felt great.
All that hard work and training really paid off. Congratulations!
Wow...just, wow! Talk about a perfectly executed race! To be able to run that strong at the end of a marathon is just amazing! It's a true testament to hard work paying off. Huge congrats to you on a very well earned PR!
Brb, now I have to go read your log for the last six months.

Bruce...Yep, like you, it was a lot of ice-on-the-beard kind of runs that got me there. I don't know if I can ever match those splits again. I kinda wish I had just scrapped under 3 hours so my next PR wouldn't be so hard to get ha.
Fuzzy...Thanks, I am thrilled. Your sub 3 at Boston and the report of how you did it was a huge inspiration.
DaveP...Did you have your doubts as you were reading? I know I did. You're right that you all seemed to have a lot more confidence than I did, which really helped me and gave me something to cling to.
Bplus...Double congrats? Sweet! I guess I felt okay about dropping the times because I knew I was holding back trying to run 6:52's. I also just figured that 10-15 seconds faster wouldn't take too much out of me, so if it got hard I could just pull back a little. And you're right, it was a lot about trust in training, especially in the sense that I really could tell how my body was feeling.
Irishguy...Thank you. This was a really fast course - 34 guys went sub 3.
April...Thanks. I feel like I complained as hard as I raced, so thanks for putting up with me in the dailies.
Awood...The end did feel really strong. It was so energizing to hear the crowd telling me how good I looked and to just keep passing people.
AmiK...Thanks. I'm so happy it turned out this way, and I think I'm enjoying it more because I didn't expect it.
Luke...I can't believe how perfectly the splits turned out. It was like someone else did it for me!
Scott...Thank you. I think we all share the victories we have on here, which is what makes this place awesome. I love the math you did...that is kinda crazy!
D2the2nd...Ha, I hope you had fun with the log reading. I kept waiting for the slow down to come at the end, but it just never did.

Great pacing, great race! A 12 minute PR AND a sub 3 is really, really impressive. Congrats!
Craptapulous (as in holy crap and fabulous - new word I just made up). Amazing race, run perfectly. Perhaps most telling in your RR is the fact you do not cite your AG or OA position. I have found you through your posts to be most humble and positive. To see you execute your plan only makes me more proud to share in a forum with a Class Act like your self. BRAVO.
A 16 minute PR?!?!?! Man, that is CRAZY fast! That was also a quality RR. Very well done from top to bottom.

Wow, SIAR - great RR. What an awe-inspiring race! Great job!
Completely PINK-MAZING!!! I am so very excited for you, SIAR!! You ran a splendidly executed, blazing fast marathon!! I know that you had your doubts in the weeks leading up to the race, but you have trained for so long and so well that I always had faith in you!! Congrats on a beautifully run race!! Bask in the glory of your sub 3, take some time to recovery well, and then get back out there and conquer your next goal - you can do it, SIAR!!
But The Smile That I Sent Out Returned With You.
rather be sprinting
That is straight up INCREDIBLE, seems like an ideal situation. Enjoy your glory.

Dad on the run.
I know envy is one of the 7 deadly sins, but I'm envious. That's some damn fast running. I always feel like I'm fast after I set a new PR in a 5K, then I read one of these HM or FM race reports and see the times some of you run them in and then I come back to reality and realize "Oh yea, I'm still slow "
Amazing job, I can't imagine ever running sub 7 min miles, let alone for 26 of them.
My parents said I could be anything when I grew up, so I decided to be Awesome!
