Perfect day. Low 70's, light wind, and overcast for the run.

So basically, that was the good year....next year will be like either 2005 or 2006 :b

While bragging about my buddy's first marathon, a couch potato type lady asked if his finishing time of 6 hours was "fast"

I asked her how that compared to her personal best marathon time, and she just looked at me and said
"I've never done one"

Well there you go.

Congrats!
