Congratulations to Doug, my brother Keith, and his wife Vicki! Keith and Vicki ran the 1/2 and Doug did the full.
I've been running with Keith on weekends and he's been kind of trining out at the end of each run and we've been running around a 12 min/mile pace. I told him he would do better in the race and he did posting a 10:34 paced 2:18:26. Vicki also outdid her training times with a 2:33:13.
Doug ran the first half in 1:43, a couple minutes faster than his time 5 years ago. Back in 2004 he ran the second half 20 minutes slower and finished with a 3:45. This year he held his pace and crossed the finish line at 3:27:18 qualifying for the Boston Marathon!
