Quick post race thought... let's clear this up

1) Let me start by saying I'm EXHAUSTED-- after the marathon we walked alllllll around SF then took at 9:30 pm plane to land in Cinci at 7:40 am-- so if this isn't coherent I'm sorry
2) My garmin failed-- fog! Thought I was pacing the 3:50 group well until about mile 18... REALLY bad hamstring cramps at miles 18/19 had to slow down
3) SF has my finishing time at 3:25 and it is SO wrong! At least I believe it is! With my garmin off there is no way of telling. That is obviously SMASHING BQ time for me and would be just lovely if I did but I did not...
4) A guy may or may not have died on our plane on the way home...

... more to tell later. So tired.


  1. whoa, sounds like a whirlwind of a few days! Congrats on another marathon, get some rest, hope the hamstrings are ok!! Looking forward to the full report!

  2. Magnesium? Remember those bad cramps I got at Devil's Lake? That was some of the worst pain I've ever experienced! Makes me glad men don't have babies. It reminds me of the old "Bacon & Egg Sandwich" saying ... "the chicken is involved, but the pig is committed". Men are involved with childbirth, women are committed.

    Hey! Chips don't lie! Misrepresent the truth? Yes! Lie? No!

    I may pull the trigger tonight and sign up for the September ID/MT double. I hate to spend all that money, but it'll likely be my last airfare of 2009 (excepting the "business trip" OR/CA double in October).
