If anyone has seen a clear plastic water container with a green top at the gym please let me know I misplaced my water thing at the gym somewhere and I know I need my water.

7am Marathoners

Ditty - 5:00 (although we think she was just under 5hrs)
TP - 3:59
P. Lentus - 3:27

it was a great day for a marathon, weather was just right: cool enough, but not cold. Ditty's parents flew out from Austin for it and our college friends came from Boston, NYC, and local to cheer us on. Ditty was exactly 26.2 years old today (marathons are 26.2 miles long) so it was very poetic. Laura stepped in at 13.1 miles to run the 2nd half with Ditty and was a great Pacecar. We all hit "walls" around 21ish miles, but we pushed through and finished our first (and only) marathons. Before this, none of us had run more than 20 miles. We are very excited to get back into CrossFit and thank you for the support!

Welcome to the family Emily!

Tim P said...

Hey thanks for all the support guys- it was great to witness all of the "heart" today that it takes to complete such a run that we've never done before. Now I'm on a mission to replace my 3,127 calories...

running a marathon shows an addiction to pain so my respect to those that even attempt one. finishing it on the other hand....great job guys. i hear the psyche ward has some room...
