Hyannis Marathon Recap

Hi everyone! Just a QUICK recap about the Hyannis Marathon Ryan and I ran on Sunday. We will post pictures and more info later. To make a long story short, the race was a success! The weather was crappy, freezing rain, snow and rain but it wasn't too cold, in the 30s.I set out to pace 2 women from my running club for their first BQ. 1 woman, Wendy, successfully got her BQ! She was amazing! She even took a pit stop for about 3 minutes but we made up the time. She was thrilled, it was fun to help her reach her goal. Ryan had a great race...I'll let him tell you more about that though...(hint, he got some hardware!)

Hyannis was a great day for me. I ran this marathon back on 2006 and it was my 3rd marathon. This past Sunday I ran it as my 20th marathon. Can't believe I hit #20 already! Time sure flies when you're having fun! :-)

Pictures and more info in the next post! We've been so bad about posting lately! We are less than 3 months away til the wedding now!

The weather sounds PERFECT to me. It will be near 70 degrees with high humidity for Snickers on Sat. NOT my kind of weather.

Awesome pace work and sounds like Ryan needs a big congrats.
