Jerry’s first ING NYC Marathon was certainly a success.
He ran a 2:55:17!!!!
That is a 6:42 pace, and good for 711th place. Out of 46,795 finishers. That is the top 2%!
Here he is between miles 16-17, after just crossing the Queensboro bridge into Manhattan.
He even managed a wave!
It was a gorgeous day for spectating, and we headed into Central Park to catch him at Mile 25.
Then we hurried across the park to the runners exit.
I am truly amazed at my husband’s accomplishment.
I’m inspired by his dedication and to running, and in awe of his talent.
And I’m sure he is already eying a 2:50 marathon in Boston next April.
Just as soon as he can feel his legs again
I’m hoping Jerry will share his thoughts on the marathon later this week!
