I'm so excited to have beaten my old PR of 2:18:00 and even get a time under 2:10:00. Everything today was perfect; the weather, my nutrition, & my knee.  My husband did even better than I, with a time of 2:05:16.  (Thanks for blowing me out on your first race man-LOL) All my racing buddies did great too!  Next year I'll definitely try to get under 2:00:00.  I'll post more about this race latter in the week.  Thanks to everyone for their support, I was thinking about you during my race today. :)

Shannon -

You were competing with yourself, not John, and you won by running a 2:09. A 9 minute PR is outstanding. Congratulations to both of you. The training definitely worked. Glad that the weather and knee cooperated. Since you beat last year's time by 9 minutes, shouldn't next year's goal be to beat this year's time by 9:50?
