Marathon PR!

Just got back from Louisville, KY. And not to bury the headline, I PR'd! 3:03:38. Felt good going in and new it would come close to Austin last year. The race itself was a little confusing (I think they messed up a few mile markers in a row(?)) But the last half was smooth and felt good pretty much the whole time. I imagine a young Cassius Clay running in front of me and telling me to go faster. I pictured the guy in front of me to be Joe Frazier. I always loved Ali's admission that he was so tired he literally thought he would die at the end of the 'Thrilla'.

So seeing the Mohammed Ali Center was a a major highlight. I am definitely a fan, but even if i was not, the museum was amazing. The presentation of data was interactive and very entertaining. Who would expect much else from Ali?

I also visited Churchill Downs and the Louisville Slugger Factory. VERY cool stuff. So that is done, now on to Providence in (gasp) 2 weeks. Then a few weeks after that is Notre Dame Marathon (what i call it, really is the Sunburst at Southbend or something like that). EXCITED!
