Notes

Marine Corps Marathon.

Ran with son Matt in his first marathon. Both of us were undertrained and had the goal of finishing with injury or too much suffering. We suposed we would finish between 4:30 and 5:00. Averaged 10:30 pace through the first half, walking the water stops. Discomfort set in before halfway and increased from there. Walked more in the second half, maybe a minute every mile, whenever Matt felt like it. He picked it up in the last mile or so and finished looking strong. Very nice to run the race with him. He signed up for the race to do something with me that I like to do. Cool!
