Notes: First Marathon for me at age 68. Very tough race fro me. Everything hurt when i finished. But I did finish despite some leg cramps between miles 20 and 21 and right after mile 25. I didn't hit my target time but I learned a bit about running marathons. I was lucky the Marathon didn't really smack me down--just a gentle reprimand for not giving it the full respect it deserves. Next time i will reserve more time for training up for the Marathon. But I am elated that I finished and had a respectable time and got my Boston qualifying time.
