2010 Las Vegas Marathon - 3:05:06 / 7:04

2010 Las Vegas Marathon

Net Time: 3:05:06
Pace: 7:04
Rank: 84/5154
AG: 67.5%

Just a quick update after landing in JFK today.....Redemption after 2009's 3:18!  I knew I had no business racing this monster, but everything was booked stayed at the Wynn!  Considering the lack of quality runs due to my Hong Kong/Macau hiatus, and recovery after the NYC marathon, I'm very pleased with the result.  I have to say that the wheels came off early after mile 16 (although my splits states mile 20, i knew by mile 16 it wasn't going to be pretty); but managed to gut it out with a 3:05.  With 23 marathons and 7th of the year, it is safe to say 2010 marathoning is over!  I'm looking forward to 2011.

One quick note; while waiting for the shuttle outside the Wynn, for the Marathon Maniac (#20518) who was complaining ad nauseum over the stench of Tiger Balm to soothe muscle soreness, you would think someone who does myriad marathoning would be more understanding.   Big mistake...big mistake; I guess not!

And finally, whats up Zab!

Reese- That was a horrible game. I just dont know...i shouldve turned it off at halftime. Im still pissed right now!

Dan- Im done for the year! LV was really an option but i just felt i needed to do better than my 3:18 disaster last year. Glad i got this out of the way! And congrats on the 10K; go Orange!

OH to be yound and invincible like you. I seem to be down to only 1 marathon a year, while since 10-10-10 you have ran 3... You rock. Have you got big plans for the new year? like another handful of sub 3's or are we going to look at a fast half or even something shorter.
Good luck

You're such a stud. It was so awesome to see you there. What a great surprise. Really hope to bump into you again. Hope we can have a beer or two while we're at it.
