Bad Ass

    Nice job!  I think you have a great shot at the sub-3.  Go get it.

    It's always fucking hot in Miami!


      No pictures of mile markers, sleeping babies and kissing girls? I'm a little disappointed...

      1:25 and a PR is absolutely awesome. Especially so soon after Boston. You're certainly no old man, you're some kick ass runner, Brad! Congratulations!

        Congratulations!  Sounds like a well run race.


        Strange about the measurements, but that will happen sometimes.  I will occasionally run several GPS programs at once, to see if they match up, and there are often discrepancies.  Weather can definitely affect the readings.

        2013 Goals:

        1. Start, stay, and finish the year uninjured!

          Great race, LtH.  Coming just two weeks after Boston, that is very impressive.

            Seriously speed race LTH!  I, too, enjoy reading your in race thoughts, because you do such a good job of detailing what you were thinking and feeling.  Congrats on a PR, especially when it wasn't planned.

              Congrats on a great race. Good lesson - barring injury, no good reason to ever DNS, because you never know what kind of day you're going to have.
