Post Marathon

That shirt says Finisher, by the way! I suppose the picture is sideways. I was able to rotate the view on my BlackBerry but I don't think it sticks for emailing.

So, 4:38:36. A little bit slower than my hoped for sub-4:30, and of course way slower than my (apparently unrealistic) wish for 4:15 or so.

I could go on about how I was on pace for 4:20 about halfway, and hung onto 4:30 till about mile 20...but I'll wait for a computer and maybe some race pics, if they're not too horrendous.

I took a small victory that I at least got in under 4:40!

Despite wearing recovery socks (which were great!) my legs are pretty tired and I'm still walking pretty gimpily (even if that's not a word, you know what I mean).

One more night at the lovely Westin (and tonight I really expect to appreciate the Heavenly Bed), though sadly, we have to leave early to get me to work in the morning. The end of the holiday weekend is near...sigh.

Congratulations! I heart the Heavenly Bed - hopefully that and the new compression socks hoped you recover well :)
