OC Marathon Results
Run Time: 3:58:06
Gun Time: 3:59:54
Half Time: 1:53:56

Did I mention that a marathon is 26.2 miles? And it was raining. Which reminds me, if you ever run a marathon in the rain, do not wear sunglasses. After about 5 minutes, you will have absolutely no dry clothing to wipe the raindrops away. I'm pretty sure it was hailing at the finish line, but Nico says I was imagining it. But I digress.

Big PacifiCare Marathon thank-yous to the leaders of the 4 hour pace group (they caught up to me around mile 23 and gave me a half mile pep talk) and to world record holder Amy Dodson (I followed her for about 5 miles in the late teens and early twenties). Sorry that link is a little old, but for some reason, the local press was not terribly interested in a marathon runner with a prosthetic leg. Anyway, I beat her by a good 2 minutes.

8 weeks until the Huntington Beach Pacific Shoreline Marathon. Think you can't do it?
