Finished My First Marathon

ING Hartford Marathon Results 2012


Finished the marathon! I’m a bit tired but relatively injury free. I felt real good throughout the race and kept really close to my goal pace of 4:45. I’ll give a full recap later. I thought of you all often and it really kept me going. Last night I read a great post about marathon advice by Kris Lawrence (no relation that I know of) that also really helped me out.

Best of luck to all those running in Chicago tomorrow and in other places.
