Thanks guys

Here's a cool stop action video of the start

I'm in the second wave, on the right. :-b The video doesn't show a third wave that started at 10:40.

It was an awesome experience. The throngs of people lined up for the entire 26.2 miles (except for the bridges) made this a special experience. The fans in Brooklyn were nuts, central park and 1st ave were awe inspiring. All in all a great experience. I met Robin Quivers at mile 10 and chatted with her for a while, very nice lady. Going to soak now.


Great job man!

Ended up dropping back to the half. Came down with shin splints after an 18-mile run about 6 weeks prior to the race.

I ran a half marathon in November and am now training for my first marathon on March 20th. Any tips for beginning marathoners?

Don't run your long runs too fast (like I did). :,-( Run them _at least_ a mile per minute over your predicted marathon pace.

Don't set a time goal for your first (like I did), just aim to finish and enjoy the day regardless of your finish time.

Don't continue to run thru shinsplints hoping they'll go away (like I did).

Good luck!

I just saw this. Sorry to hear that Bwanna. I've suffered with shin splints at various times in my life and they suck and are painful. The only thing I can suggest is to stretch, stretch and then strech again. But strench warm, never cold. And don't let them stop you from running.

And I just registered today for the Chicago Marathon. Registration opened Feb 1 and fills up in a month so I had to decide soon which race to run this year. I talked a friend into it and we're bringing our families with us. Sunday Oct 9, 2011 I'll be running the Magnificent Mile (plus 25.2 other miles) ;-D

And 2012 will be my first triathlon. I've been swimming this winter and I like it so I might as well do something useful with it.

I don't know how you do it Mookie. I just completed my longest training run of 20 miles and I don't know how anyone can keep continously training for marathons. It's not so much the physical part of it as the mental. It begins to get very boring running for 3+ hours with nothing to think about besides how much longer you're going to be running for.
