Athlete update: Beth ran 3:03 and placed 3rd over-all at the Las Vegas Marathon. Her first 13.1 miles were in 1:33. Her second 13.1 in 1:30.
Fatdad ran 3:15, (his goal was 3:10) no word from him yet, but Beth suspects stomach problems..

Thanks, coach! couldn't have done it without you. i'm just bummed you weren't here in your celine dion costume. ok. time to leave the computer and go have some drinks! if i can move, that is....btw, my thoughts during the whole thing were "this is just one long progression run".

Congrats to Beth! Too bad you weren't here.

I would have loved to see that Celine Dion costume.

Any results on fatdad?

Wya to go Beth! Didn't you just run a 1:29 1/2? To only run 4 minutes slower on the first 1/2 of this race and then SPEED UP is incredible for a first marathon. Thats a rare feat - its a hard race the first few times and quite easy to lock up.

One of Beth's season goals was to run a 1/2 marathon in under 1:30.. she came close to doing it again in the LAST half of a marathon!
