And the winner is...

And the winner is the Boston marathon course, hands down. She's a fickle one, tempted all with nice weather and possible fast times, but then grabbed this runner and spit me out like I'd been through a meatgrinder.

The 'famous' shorts being 'aired out' after #7.

The infamouse so-called runner with medal and nice bottle of Smithwicks imported Irish beer

Damage done but rewarded with this and a time of 3:23:32 and place of 278 in my age/sex division out of 620 atheletes. Get complete results at the BAA website for my number 7770. Good 1st half but tough 2nd half and last miles were a step by step struggle. More to follow after it's all had time to stew a bit.

Now just relaxing and topping up the fluid and calorie stores after a fantastic meal by my wonderful hosts at "Chez G&A's ", ice-cream and chocolate brownies are in store once the main meal has had a bit of time to settle. Mmmmm!!

I watched you progess today...and 3:23:32 is nothing to feel bad about! That's a strong run Mike. I love those shorts!

Congratulations Mike! I was watching your progress as well as I just could not stand being at school with Boston tempting me with live coverage.

Mike, a 3:23 at Boston is nothing to hang your head on. Nice race. Doesn't beer freakin' taste so good after a marathon? Well deserved cheers! Down the hatch.

Mike - nice toe tag! Congrats on #7. Cant't wait for the blow by blow.

Looks like your foot really deserves that medal! You shall henceforth be known as "Boston BraveToes".

Can't wait for the details :)

Mike said...

Well done Mike, you should be proud. Sounds like a lot of folks had trouble with the Newton hills and beyond. If it was easy everyone would do it. Those are some scary toes though! Recover well, you've earned a rest.

Thomas said...

That big toe looks SORE!! I know your pain. But it looks like you had a good race, despite your overly modest recap.

Enjoy the recovery! And hurray for The Shorts.

Hunter said...

Well done!

olga said...

Yay, Mike! #7 is in the books!

Andrew said...

Good job Mike! Now for your well deserved rest.
