    4h 34min so basically what I had expected. It was crowded, cold and wet

    Anyone else do it?!? Happy I did it, even happier I'm done, warm and dry! icon_biggrin.gif

    Congrats! I heard from a friend that the race was not ideal because of the rain. The important thing is you did it! Awesome.

    I spent my day at the Shamrock Marathon in Virginia Beach. Ran two friends in the last couple miles (one for half marathon and one for full). Both had PRs so was a good day!

    Thanks guys! Yeah Ironman4U it was very rainy with the cold rain pelting my face!
    Interestingly it provided very fresh air, surprisingly refreshing. Also kinda cool to see all the different neighborhoods: Mariachi bands, Chinese kettle drums, drag queens and rich people in Rodeo Drive cheering us on.

    I saw some guys run the race barefoot (no thanks) and in Vibrams (one guy looked like he was in pain)
