Despite the near guarantee of slower times, there's something appealing about the "suck it, bitches!" from mother nature years.  It's a great way to level the playing field and with the caliber of white folk entered on both sides, means that the Americans have as good a shot as anybody!....  Can't wait to see what kind of bizarre outfit Salazar has Rupp compete in.


Boom! 3 for 3!  :smokin:

I'm just going to start dictating Ellen's report until she returns to duty...

Miles 20, 21:   13:56, 14:39

Everything is wet and I'm dying.  Stopped to punch a random guy with resting douche-face and steal his umbrella.  Heartbreak.  What drives you to push forward when you're simultaneously climbing a hill and swimming upstream?  Pretended the asphalt was Trump's face.  Effective.

So, I haven't see the finish yet - naturally - but how does Des's finish rank up there with Shalane's "Fuck YES!!!" in NYC???

Arrojo done at 5:31.  10 minutes apart and probably never saw each other.

May god have mercy on your souls.   :snowball:

Don't confuse my personality with my attitude.  My personality is who I am.  My attitude depends on who you are.

Iím pissed that Ellen beat me. <kidding>. Ellen rocks.  I posted this on FB:

What a crazy race that was. An hour slower than any marathon Iíve ever run, but I canít think of a better way to run my final Boston Marathon.  My goal was to give it all I had, finish strong, and smile.

So I embraced the relentless downpour and headwinds with the help of my amazing wife Robin crewing me, the millions of cheering spectators, and volunteers (thank you GFRC).   They told me Iíd never run again and I just completed the most badass Boston Marathon ever.

I can’t believe how awful it was out there.. we saw some scary sights.. runners looking catatonic.. we were a mile 24...

Also, not an easy day to spectate.. walked over 14,000 steps in wet soggy hiking boots and my knee is sore..

My daughter is pleased enough with her race but says the whole experience was the highest or highs and the lowest of lows.. she badly positive split and almost everyone I checked did too.. she negative split her last two races before that.. she feels like the weather psyched her out and she also made the virgin Boston mistake of going out too fast.. although I don’t think that would have mattered today..
Mad props to anyone who persevered today

Good job, personally I might have bailed on that one.  But it's Boston, so what are gonna do?  Time doesn't really matter under conditions like that.  Congrats.
