Sorry for the long delay in posting. Been crazy since I got back from Myrtle Beach. Episodes 17 and 18 of the podcast have really detailed race reports.
I fell short of the 3:20 goal for BQ, but did set a new PR at 3:28. So very pleased about that. Here is how I did relative to the field of runners that day:
Finish time: 3:28:26
Overall placement: 174th out of 1,737 marathon finishers
Age Group: 40-44 AG, 27th out of 203.
Between November 13, 2010 at Chickamauga (3:48) and February 19, 2011 Myrtle Beach (3:28), I’ve shaved 20 minutes off my marathon time.
