Grandma's Marathon 2008

Well, my 4th Grandma's Marathon is in the books. It was a good run. I've been running more miles than other years (quite slooooowly), and I didn't do my normal, Higdon-inspired 18 week training program. So it shouldn't be all that surprising that this was my 2nd slowest marathon in 5:01:46. I'll take it... and the t-shirt and medal too. :)

Thanks to Paul for shuttling Andy and I around before and after, and putting his professional spectator skills to work -- if my count is correct, he saw me at 5 different places. He's also responsible for the pictures and video below. It was also nice to see Sean and Adria at a couple spots (thanks for the lemon drops, Sean). And thanks also to the other folks who would've cheered for me if the gap between Andy and I wasn't so big. hehe

I expect I'll go back to do it again in 2009.
