10/12/13 The Hartford Marathon! 26.2 miles in 4:10:00!
It was a gorgeous day in Hartford! We couldn't have asked for better weather—sunny, breezy, mid-60s. (Last year it was freezing--28 degrees at the start!) I had a great run, felt strong. I faded in the last two miles so didn't set any personal records, but finished faster than I did in Boston. I was sore for a couple of days, but not as much as I remember from previous races. (Getting stronger?)
The best news of all: we raised over $17,000 for the Children’s Tumor Foundation this year! Thank you to everyone who supported us! With your help we will find a cure for NF!
Jane received a postcard from her principal today! Had to share it :)
Have to highlight another athlete in the family! Alec’s soccer team got to play a short game under the lights on the turf of the new playing fields in Madison. Look at that kick!
