      Great Job, Slimbo!!!!!! You're way faster than my first Half. Keep up the good work!!!! Are you going to get you marathon on your 40th?
        Thanks! And yes -- I am running the NYC marathon 2 weeks before my 40th

          Nice job on the race, and way to finish strong. Nothing proves your fitness and toughness better than passing runners late in a distance race. I too ran my first marathon shortly before my 40th -- have a great race in NY!

          How To Run a Marathon: Step 1 - start running. There is no Step 2.

            I don't think the percentage of first timers with something left in the tank at the end is very high, nicely done Slimbo!

              woohoo! congrats on a great race

              First or last...it's the same finish line

                Brag all you want - that time is fantastic. Sounds like you are going to just fine in that full marathon.

                See how they run...

                  On the road again...

                    Awesome. I hope I can pass people at the end when I run my first half in December.

                    I have a love/hate relationship with running. I do it, but sometimes I love to hate it.

                      Good for you - you should be proud. I'm looking forward to posting my own shameless brag after I run Bay State in 3 weeks. Although I won't be running 8-minute miles, that's for sure.
                        hey -- thanks for the props ... now my gloating is over and it's back to the grindstone. Have a long run Friday and it looks like driving rain and wind ... just keeping my head down until Nov. Good luck in the bay state [marathon or 1/2?] ... I was checking out your log ... you are all over those 8 min / mls ... i will wait for the brag come Oct.
