A BIG HUGE HEARTY CONGRATULATIONS TO MY BUDDY BRET (BRET.FASTRUNNINGBLOG.COM) FOR HIS 3:01:17 AT THE NEW YORK MARATHON TODAY!!!! THIS IS A SEVERAL MINUTE PR FOR HIM MANY, MANY YEARS AFTER HIS LAST PR.
Bret and I were high school teammates in Dunedin Florida back in the early 1980s. He doesn't know it, but he will be running 2:50 or faster within a year.
I'm really sore today and my right hammy is really tight today, so I just went for a three mile walk.Still bummed about yesterdays race, but I'm really encouraged by what I would have run. The more I think about it, the more certain I am that I would have run a 1:14 or faster. I think now that I can run a 1:13 at Austin in January so I'm going to make that the focus of my training.
