Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon




I ran the Lakefront Marathon on Sunday, finishing with my personal best time: 3 hours, 21 minutes, 19 seconds. I was able to shave 11 minutes off my prior PR. I'm quite pleased to have run my personal best. I finished 171st out of 2,011 total finishers. I was 30th of 174 in my division of men aged 35-39. I was 155th of 1,158 men who finished.


Marathons I've run:

1. San Francisco Marathon, 2005. 4 hours, 14 minutes.

2. Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon, 2005. 3 hours, 37 minutes.

3. Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon, 2006. 3 hours, 33 minutes.

4. Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon, 2007. 3 hours, 32 minutes.

5. Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon, 2008. 3 hours, 21 minutes.


I'm still a bit sore, but am feeling great.


Many thanks to my parents; Dave, Sara, and Abby; Kim K.; Michelle SD; John M; and JoAnn and Dale for being there to cheer me on.
