Boston Finisher!!

I have 20 pages in my notebook....notes all over the place, I am not sure how I will be able to put them in any sort of order for a race report.. It was a TOUGH DAY!! My body did not show up to race, fatigue and hunger from mile 1. I wanted to quit at mile 4... BUT I FINISHED!!!

4:01:26

Garmin said 26.49 in 4:01:30....so I say that I got my coveted sub 4:00

Race report and weekend details to come....back to work and I have a Muscle Man and 2 Little Studs who need my attention..


JUST POSTED A QUICK REPORT ON DAILYMILE HERE

HAPPY WEDNESDAY!!
