2011 memorial day marathon: race photos and results

it was a hot and humid day in van cortlandt park. the morning kicked off with a thunderstorm that flooded a good stretch of the trail for the first half of the memorial day marathon. a bunch of us started early, at 9:00 - todd, mark, joe, emmy and me. if emmy hadn't insisted on running the entire 4 loops, i would easily have called it a day at the half! i'm glad we stuck it out. ran a 5:15 (which was 10 minutes slower than the queens 50k on saturday!) - and emmy finished her first full holiday marathon!

i'll post a short race report, and add a link to the results once they're posted.

It was a hot one, baby! I have mild regret in not trying to run that 4th loop, but even the 20-mile effort was very satisfying. Great work in putting in a hot marathon on the back of that hot 50K on Saturday, Frank!

thanks todd! i was amazed that we didn't see you or mark for the rest of the day!! if it wasn't for emmy, i could have called it a day after 2 loops :O
