Recovery is evil

As I gingerly and slowly work the lactic acid and tightness out of my body, I get frustrated and excited seeing fellow runners out there moving freely and getting into the zone. No doubt the miraculous turn in the weather has had something to do with it, but nevertheless soon i will be moving freely amongst them.

In other news, the official results were posted today for the Glass City Marathon and showed a 3 hr 24 min 46 sec time for me. A seven second difference in the time I recorded and since there were no timing chips, i am going with mine. Although I did not even crack the top 5 in the 30-34 age group, i did finish 39th out of 428 finishers which put me in the top 10% of all finishers . Pretty cool.

Now all I have to is work on Dirrty Girl and try to get a trip to Clevland for D.D.M.C #5.

If I wasn't doing the Marine Corps Historic Half in Virginia I would be doing the Cleveland Half which is unfortunately the same weekend. I'm from Cleveland so if I was able to run in my "home city" it would be very special. Maybe next year.

I say go for it in Cleveland! And make sure to wear some "Go Blue!" garb...or maybe not...
