At the Races

Washington DC Rock ‘N Roll Marathon & Half Marathon, March 15, 2015–Stephen Sundown

After an epic winter and training through it, winter did not loosen its grip on us for this past Saturday DC Rock n Roll marathon. Instead, it gave us yet another hurdle to overcome. Freezing rain and wind from the beginning to the end of the 26.xx (most Gamines measured an at least an extra .25 miles), yet there were no DNF in this crowd.
Ellen was having an awesome race until mile 18 when hypothermia set in and almost brought her down, but she endured and finished @ 3:59:37.
I saw Glenn looking chipper around mile 19, but the head wind and rain took its toll. Glenn salvaged his race with at 3:22:15, it took all afternoon for him to get circulation back in his fingers and legs..
Sue also had a good race, in tough weather she endured and finished with 4:17:07.
Jane fought through and finished with a great time of 3:39:00, 4th in age group.
Mr. Giggs did the half marathon and looked comfortable as he always does on the course, a 1:22:04 and 2nd in age group. A nice training run for him as he prepares for Boston.
I’m guessing my tolerance was built up through this winter’s training and I was able to have a good race- enduring the rain and cold temps for a PR of 2:57:22-coming in 1st in my age group, 24th overall
Certainly gun shy about another winter training though..
