Boston Baked my Beans

Ok. It’s still a little early the day after the 2012 Boston Marathon. That’s the best headline I could come up with., pub-4167727599129474, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

It was hot and grueling, but I made it. This was the most challenging marathon I have ever run since my first marathon. I was completely spent at the end and had nothing left to “run it in”.

It was all I could do to run down Boylston Street. When I turned the corner off of Hereford Street onto Boylston the thought of walking it in actually crossed my mind.

My legs ached and the finish line looked like it was a mile away. I knew it was only about a quarter-mile away and there was no way I was going to walk the last quarter-mile of this thing. In a flash the thought of walking was gone.

Since I’m at work today and they expect me to get something done, and I’m a little tired, I’ll post my recap in a day or two.

Run well my Friends,

      It was probably the toughest marathon so far.

    Nice Job Andy, I watched the race on tv. decided not to run that day but did ride the bike for a short 12 miler. I can remember how challenging the 10k’s were in the heat of the summer and could not imagine running 26.2 in that heat.

      It was draining, grueling and brutal. I’m glad I didn’t defer, and I’m glad it’s over! I’ll be posting my race post-op tonight. I appreciate your comments.
