Before I go collapse, a quick update. I had three goals set for the marathon (whose name I am able to speak for the first time in two weeks):
— The fairly-likely-to-make-it goal: just finishing.
— The if-everything-goes-well goal: finishing in under 5 hours.
— The pie-in-the-sky goal: finishing in 4.30, which was of course Never Going to Happen.
My chip time, according to the lovely folks at marathon central was 4.32.56.
Having rocked, I’m now going to go take a nap. More on the race particulars, once I’m able to process information again.
