Oops, I Did It Again!

Two years ago on October 11th, I did my first half-marathon from the scenic Mohawk River to the shores of the Hudson. This past weekend, I returned to the scene of that crime and did the full marathon, with one in between last October.

In comparison to the 2009 half, I am in much better shape:

I did twice the work with half the after-effects.

I beat one year ago by a decent margin of 14 minutes.

I’ve now completed 26.2 twice.

It’s funny what a little thing like widowhood will do to one’s life perspective.
