2010 = the year of PR's

I'm not going to write a full race report now, but the short version is that Tom and I had good races today (besides feeling like hell from about mile 16 on).

I had two realistic goals (beat my PR (4:21:20) and to go sub 4:10) and one far out goal (sub 4)... I hit two of three!

I PRed by 12 minutes (woohoo!) and finished in 4:09:19. I was on track to go sub 4 with Tom but blew up with some weird burning where my toes meet the balls of my feet. Weird...

Tom did awesome - PRed by 2 minutes and hit his sub 4 goal!

And I made it to Max and Erma's in one piece (although my stomach only let me enjoy some pretzels and a cup of soup. I did order cookies to go and have polished off 1.5 of the 6 already!)

I'm so happy for you and seriously for a gal that seems to hate the marathon you did awesome. That big smile on your face coming down the straight away was priceless.

Ohhh and so glad I've got a big enough mouth that you saw me screaming like a monkey!!!!

P.S. Tell Tom he sneaked right by me I was looking in front of the 4 hour group, booo!!!
