A New PR (Read 833 times)

Roses Revenge

    I'm old and slow compared to most of you, but managed to beat my best marathon time by 30:39 in yesterdays race. Went in with a 7 hour goal and a 6:30 stretch goal and finished in 6:48. Ran some, walked some, ran some more, walked some more. FINISHED!

    Marathon Maniac #991 Half Fanatic #58 Double Agent #22  It's a perfect day and I feel great!

      Awesome! Very, very well done. A PR is a PR and that is a massive one! Cool

        Congratulations! Yes, you're older than I am, but I've never run a marathon and don't know if I have it in me! You rock. Big grin

              May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be always at your back, may the sun shine warm upon your SPF30, may the rains fall soft upon your sweat-wicking hat, and until you hit the finish line may The Flying Spaghetti Monster hold you in the hollow of His Noodly Appendage.

                          Any vertical finish is a good finish....good job.
