After months of training, Himself ran a marathon in 3:24:03 this morning. This was noteworthy for two reasons:
1) it's his fastest time ever by several minutes, and
2) it's a qualifying time for the Boston Marathon for his age group by almost a full minute!
A very big deal on both counts.
For any who don't happen to carry mile splits in their heads (aka non-running, normal people), that's 7:47 miles for 26.2 miles straight. I can't run one mile that fast. So happy for him!!
Also, I didn't want to be stuck in a car with him for three hours on the way home tomorrow if he missed his goal. :)
