my 2011 boston marathon was essential two races - a decent first half, and a terrible second half. i knew going in that my original 3:30 target would be a tough number. but even as late as the half, just off my 1:40 target with a 1:43 split, there was some hope. but at mile 18 i had to pull off for a bathroom stop and the last 3-4 miles were a real struggle. i finished with a 3:47:22 - not my slowest boston, but 10 minutes slower than 2009. even so, it was a great weekend - and another boston is in the books :D
here are the results from the baa.
