    Just curious what your shortest time between marathons has been? I met a woman who has run back to back marathons on the same weekend.

    I pay homage to her but could never do that with succcessful times.

    She must be extremely gifted or extremely foolish. There's no way her body could recover sufficiently to run two marathons in a weekend, and her time would surely suffer.

    I don't recall, but I think the tightest it's been has been between Boston and Vermont City (Burlington). I ran Boston in mid-April and Vermont in late May. Boston was a total bust, but Vermont City was my best time ever.
