I finished!

Despite the odds against me...I finished the Boston marathon! My time was 3:59:31.  Just under four hours, and my slowest time by a long shot.  I am happy with it though.  I was not able to train well during the last 6 weeks because of my knee, but it held out and I was able to run almost the entire race.  (I only walked for 20 seconds at a time and stopped to stretch twice.)  

Overall, it was amazing amounts of fun...I couldn't have asked for a better 26.2 mile run. Thanks so much to Bill and his parents for coming out to Boston to cheer me on. I love you!
Finished!

Track me at the Boston Marathon

Dear Fans, Friends and Family, 

I am running the Boston Marathon on Monday, April 20th, 2009.  Last year I ran the Fargo, North Dakota marathon and qualified for Boston. Check out that post here.  I have been training very hard, and I had hopes of getting a phenomenal PR (personal record) in this marathon.  Due to an injury, I will not be running my fastest marathon, but I will preserve and cross the finish line. 

I am aware that all of my fans will not be able to make it to Boston to watch me run, so you have another option:  You can track my progress online or on your phone through text messages. Just go to this site before race day: http://baa.org/BostonMarathon/Att-Athlete-Alert.asp
or this site on race day: http://baa.org/

My Race Bib Number is: 12092

Wish me luck!

Jack is Back

That's right!  Jack Frost is alive and well in Minneapolis. It is not time to put those skis away yet. We had a hint of Spring last week, but it all came to a "frozen" stop yesterday. It was -20 with the wind chill. Despite the cold, I rode my bike to work. It was only cold for my cheek bones and eyelashes (which kept freezing shut).  A little warmer today...-3 currently. I cannot wait for it to be warm enough for a long bike ride.
