For Your Entertaiment

You know how sometimes you need a vacation from your vacation? I'm there now, with my head screwed on backwards, trying to catch up on things on the homefront after our trip to Missoula. I will gather my thoughts and write a race report in the next day or two when I am not rushed or pressed for time, but here are "just the facts, ma'am on my 2010 Missoula Marathon. My final chip time was 3:43:52, with a 9th place finish out of 82 in my age group, and 4th slowest time of my five marathons. I am actually quite happy with how things went, given where I am in training and that I chose to run a marathon in fricking JULY!

Until then, I thought I'd share my "big finish" in all of my inefficient, side-to-side arm flinging glory. I'm wearing the day-glo pink socks.

Dare I say you looked very relaxed and not so tired at the finish of that marathon? I'm sure you were and just hide it well...

Thanks for the compliments on Hoyt - he's been great so far - I'm hoping to figure out how to run at some point and try to train for a marathon but we'll see. Any motherly/runnerly advice?
