The Monkey - The Short Version

I finished.

4:38:55.

A time that I'm pretty damn pleased with considering it's a tough course compared to other marathons I've run.

Full race report to come... a friend's wife got some photos of us at the start and during the race, so I want to collect those before I give my full report.

I actually felt really good, had a ton of fun and am only a little sore today.

There was also a very awkward conversation with a man about my boobs. I'm honestly not so sure how it got started. I was chatting about needing to change into some dry clothes, and somehow the conversation turned to ballet and I mentioned I used to be a ballerina and next thing I know he's saying something about small chests being an advantage and that he thinks depending on how you're raised you have a different perspective on what's beautiful and that he thinks small chests like what ballerinas have are nice.

Umm... yeah.

(And if you read my blog mister... I don't mean offense. You just caught me and my post-marathon brain off guard.)

I'll post the report soon.

Oh, and I'm running in the Boulevard Bolt 5-Miler on Thanksgiving morning.... just in case you're still wondering about my sanity.

I guess the Monkey makes us all idiots. I can barely walk, much less thinking about another race.

Great finish (and your finish line photos are priceless - good stuff.)
