CIM marathon: race result

It was a cold (even for this Canadian) and windy day at CIM,  but perfect weather for running a marathon.  I had a great race,  and a almost 7 minute PR, final time 4:02:01...  dang!  If I had known I was that close to 4:01 something, I would have sprinted to the finish.   All in all although I wanted a sub 4 (and wasn't passed by the 4 hour bunny until mile 24),  I am very happy about my result. 

Congrats to all the marathoners today,  in particular Aron,  who I am sure most of you, ran an amazing race and qualified for Boston. 

Full race report to come, soon.  Tomorrow I am off to Napa Valley to sample some wine to celebrate!  Thanks for reading.
