                          1st place in AG with a time of 24:07. Faded as usual, mile splits were 7:28, 7:51, 7:57. Overall it was a good day and the weather was gorgeous with 39 degrees and sunny with no wind at the start. Talked with a local guy that run Boston, he finished ahead of the bombs, but said it was a terrible experience.


                            Fla, I just noticed you marked my time down. Thanks! Yes, it was a PR by 5 minutes and 3 secs. And big congratulations to you on your 1:41 half! That's a very awesome time!
