    So I just got back from the race and had to brag a bit, although my time wasn't the greatest out there. I did finish in a tad over 3:40. It was my sixth marathon in 14 months, and I have improved on my time on each one by at least ten minutes, this one by almost 15 minutes, and I felt real good at the end. I am going to focus on running/training harder for fewer races in the upcoming year or so, mainly fixing my nasty habits of skipping about 75% of my scheduled long runs. How are everyone's winter races going?

    Good for you man! Great improvement and a great time. Keep up the good work. I'm currently training for #8 - Eugene, Oregon on May 2, 2010.

    Cheers!

    13 miles in the snow on Sunday sucked like a craigslist creeper. I hate Spring marathons.

    I'll take a marathon in a foot of snow before a 65 degree day anytime. My freckled ass doesn't do well in the sun.

    Thank you very much. My time's not the best, but as long as I keep improving, i'm happy. Best of luck to you in Eugene. It looks like a great race! Let us know what you think, i'm debating that one vs. Portland to cross Oregon off of my list.
