[Moblog] Marathon post mortem
We completed the race! Mike is no longer a "46-year old virgin" in marathoning, and we had *perfect* weather: mid-50s, mostly sunny, with light wind. New Yorkers are wonderful hosts, too, with cheering spectators along virtually every mile handing out essentials like Kleenex and oh-so-tasty-and-salty pretzels. (The tastiest pretzels in the world are found at mile 21 on a marathon course... :-)
Only celebrity sighting was marathon-running Katie Holmes, who finished right behind us with her double-bodyguard escort.
Final time: about 5:43, with lots of fun along the way. Congrats, Mike, for successfully completing your first marathon!!
