4 miles with Peter on his bike. I've been sick with a sinus infection since last Saturday afternoon but finally felt a bit better today. Hopefully with one more day of recovery tomorrow I'll be set for Marathon Monday.

Race: Boston Marathon (26.219 Miles) 03:17:14, Place overall: 4251

Mega fade. Headwind and heat got the best of me (plus my lack of fitness and recent illness). So fun to participate though!!!

I couldn't believe how many spectators there were along the entire course.

Learnings for next time: Eat a much bigger breakfast before the race and wear a hat in the sun.

1:28:53 first half...18.5 minute positive split. I had some IT band issues in my right leg the last 4 miles.

First easy miles since the marathon and one mile in 4:56 (wanted to see if I could go sub 5 4 days after the marathon). Feeling pretty good. IT band issues have gone away.

Will took first in 16:03 and I was 16 seconds behind. Fun race and first place for section I! Course was a tad short.
