It's been some time since I started running, but I surprisingly have found myself now watching distance runners... I don't know why this interests me, but here I am for the second time this year, watching people run a marathon.
My Portland time was about 5:35. These elites will finish in less than half the time I did Portland. That astounds me.
I will run at least one more marathon, but I'm picky and don't want one with too many hills.
