Once again, we had very similar races, and once again you held on longer.

I hesitate to say this, because it will come back to haunt me during the next shallonge, but what can I say, you did great.

Congrats on finally BQing. ;)

Next I think I'll run with you instead of the 10 and 1 thing. I think it would be more fun that way.

It was very polite of you to save beating 3:30 until we could do it together. Maybe next fall, eh?

Congratulations for a great marathon time and, if I recall correctly, for being the instigator of the shallonge that gave pleasure and entertainment to many.

Sounds like you had a great weekend. Pretty steady pacing on the Pb.
Well done. I'm sure you'll have something left for New York.

Awesome. Like fine wine, this reads better with age.

Those were the days, indeed.

next up:

This broken wing will fly again
One fine day
This blackbird's mute gonna sing again
One fine day

So all you sinners come out
And all you drunkards crawl out
Come into the light of one fine day
