joe is approaching mile 20, thomas mile 18...
Uh-oh. Now comes "the wall."
Stay strong, guys!
Thanks for the update..
JoeN and Thomas - some of us have been talking about the sunday runs of a2kers over on the fantasy football thread too - starting here: http://able2know.org/topic/173545-57#post-4784800
Thomas probably just hitting the wall at 20.6 miles..
JoeN cooking at 22.6.. slower, natch, to do a mile. edit - he picked up speed getting to mile 23.
This finishing stuff is probably raising my bp..
I know, I know, get out and run.
Thomas regains Manhattan - JoeN at 24 miles..
Thomas at 23 miles, JoeN at 25..
Schniff, less than a mile for JoeN, something like 2.5 for Thomas.
JoeN finished, Thomas not far behind, a little over a mile and a half.
He's got a mile left.. his pace very steady..
Approaching the final turn. I can only imagine how that must feel.
And Thomas finished -- Bravo!
Yea - this all gives me chills, so great.
Bravo to both of you!!!!!
Yippee! the boys are done.
I just checked on Mr B's cousin.. 3:56:32 9:02 min/mile pace
Well done, Brent!
Great jobs, all!
Da race director (we go to all 6 races he puts on, so he knows us) called out my name when I finished.
I was the last finisher - jes comes in! Now we can all eat!
We had a blast! Rhys is a delight. He won a jogging canteen today.
Yea! I hope you all had as good a time watching as I did running it. (And that's not saying much. I was very slow this year. I intend to blame my shoes. That's coming. )
Technology failed in several ways this year, my phone was near death at the start, my Garmin watch died at about 19 miles. Meh.
So I was very glad that I could see some of the race (such as it was) on the website.
Thomas failed to connect with his sister after the finish causing some angst, but we intend to have lunch or brunch tomorrow (Thomas, A- his sister, me and my red-headed hottie.) We will compare notes and share.
Thankyou all for your interest and attention and wonderful, sweet encouragements . They mean the world to me and, I'm sure, Thomas.
(What a tough son-of-a-bitch to run and finish this trek!)
Joe(I'm humbled by his effort.)Nation
kudos joe nation.
my feet hurt just thinking about it...
