Fargo Marathon 4:04:18

Sometime's what you don't know CAN hurt you. I just finished the Fargo Marathon today in 4:04:18. I just learned that Boston qualifying for my new age group of 45-49 was 4:00:59. That means I missed it by 3 minutes, 19 seconds. And I was feeling great the whole day; sending text messages to Benny and Nytro! Next time... TriDummy said he'll pace me at Phoenix Rock-n-Roll in January if I want. Thanks! By the way, today's his BIRTHDAY!!!

Here we are at the Expo: Rom (my friend who is moving to Dallas and TriBoomer is going to show him around and introduce him to all his running buddies), Chae, Kevin, Andrea, me, Debbie, Robert (who just decided to do IM FL with us in November in a charity slot!), Cathy, and Holly.

It was a fun race! I ran most of the way with IronGirlNyhus' sister Sarah, below. She has run two marathons now and they have both been with me - she's a great pacer and I hope to do another one with her soon. She improved her time by over 20 minutes at Fargo. Way to go Sarah!

I had hoped that Nytro would carry her phone on her first ever marathon so we could keep each other company, but it was Benny who answered all my txt's! She finished the Ogden marathon and I am sure it will be fun to read her post which will likely be about those fun-loving Mormons that hosted it! Benny - thanks for entertaining me for 26.2 miles.

I drove home right away after the race so I can get to a good friend's party. TacBoy, Trimama, and TriDummy will be at this party, so I will add to this post tomorrow with as many compromising pictures and they will let me take. Ha ha... ;-)
