Notes

Marathon #17: Wonderful PR in Chicago 2009

It was a marvelous day to run a marathon today. Everything went very smoothly as I knocked out the splits pretty consistently today, which are listed below along with my unofficial result.

I feel very satisfied. I ran exactly how I had hoped and achieved my "A" goal, which was to PR with a 2:58.

I am currently undecided on my next goal. I need to savor this a bit. Running four marathons in the span of 8 months with an average time of 3:01 (w/ two sub-3's) in all major regions of the USA (West Coast, Midwest, East Coast and Southwest) is more than I would have ever imagined possible for myself.
