My personal record, this being my first ever marathon of any sort, was to just do it. See how I did. And, just to experience it. However, I could have done better, but one of my sons pulled a muscle and asked if I could just slow down a little bit for him so he / we / I could buoy him up in finishing the race . Little did I know he decided to book it the last 300 yds to the Finish Line. I could have done better than what I did.
