I'm totally pumped up about running. All morning, reports have been coming in about terrific performances by friends at marathons all over the South.
My wife, Kristen, broke four hours (3:58) at Charlotte. She had a goal. She went out and knocked it out. Check.
Jason ran 2:47 at Kiawah. No surprise to me. He's a machine and showing signs of the old days which means fast running in 2010 coming out of Bull City Running Company. Hopefully, I can sneak into his slipstream and draft.
Brendan ran 3:07 at Kiawah. Sweet Boston qualifier.
Topo ran 2:59 at Huntsville, Alabama. What a great performance.
Tic ran 3:01. Disappointing, if I had to guess that it wasn't about 90 seconds faster, but it's still sub seven's and he's still going to run a sub three. Maybe he and I need to put a January race on the calendar and go knock it out.
Jordan hopped in the Charlotte Marathon, and what the heck, won it. 2:29. He's the new Karhu/Craft rep. and we went for a run last week. Great guy and I look forward to future runs in Charlotte or Durham.
Congrats to all who have endured the Trials of Miles, as Quentin Cassidy would say.
