I just got home from Utah after the amazingly fun Top of Utah Marathon. I'll have a full race report later--need to catch up with my family and eat ice cream--but for now:
A barely-squeaked sub-4--no Boston 2012 for me.
What can I say? I started too fast and bonked! But I still beat my 6-year-old PR of 4:13:58 by 15 minutes....and I learned a ton. I also had a great time with Erin of See Mom Run Far, who went sub-3:30 (I am not worthy!) and her friend Alana, whose debut marathon was sub-4 (what a great beginning!).
Thanks for all your good wishes! I'll have details (including hail!) very soon.
