    I ran my first Boston Marathon on Monday in 4:38:38. This is almost an hour longer than my goal of 3:45:00 but I was nursing a torn hamstring injury so I took my time, high fived all the kids, hugged and kissed the Wellesley girls and just plain enjoyed myself!

    I loved Boston and I plan to do it again someday when I manage to requalify. I plan to run the Big Sur marathon next weekend (if my sports medicine doc clears me to run it).

    I ran about 4 blocks today while out with the dog. Didn't kiss any girls, but I did enjoy myself. Congratulations on a race well run, r0k! :newpalm:

    I'm fighting a cold. I have a cough that kept me awake most of last night. Tomorrow I see my sports medicine doctor to get his opinion on whether I should run Big Sur. Assuming I get the go-ahead, I'll be running (mostly jogging) Big Sur marathon Sunday 4/30.

    I hope you get over the cold quickly and your hamstring is okay. Good luck with your plans to run!
