                  Bhearn - you are also totally awesome, but those arm sleeves don't match your outfit.

                  When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

                    Darn. Lost my post. This is my favorite thread EVA.


                    Slow but steady: Amazing, amazing, amazing. And you may wanna think about changing that handle.


                    Bhearn: Amazing what a new pair of specs can do. Are the ones in the second pic Transition lenses?*



                    (*  ... You look fantastic! And not a shabby marathon PR at all! Had you been a lapsed runner reconnecting?)

                      INCREDIBLE, slowbutsteady!!  That is so awesome!  I'm with so many others, this thread, more than any other, has inspired me over, and over, and over...

                          Thanks. Heh. No, just prescription sunglasses.


                          Had you been a lapsed runner reconnecting?


                          Not really. I'd tried abortively to start running a few times, but it never really clicked until about 6 years ago, after I'd already lost the weight.

                            BHearn - awesome.


                            Slowbutsteady?  Oh. My. God.  You are truly amazing.  (and hot).  I wouldn't worry about the last few pounds.... speaking for most of the guys on here.... what an incredible transformation.  Well done.

                                That day, I was fast -- I ran my first (so far only) sub-3, at Boston. I'm not that fast this year.
