I love the analysis.

It sounds like it was amazing.

I'm blown away by the miles run since 1999. That's a lot of miles my friend.

Simply Incredible.

You should be so proud.

Great summary, David. Sweet to spend time with Mrs T and pick up the pace afterwards. Where was she around mile 22???!!!!

Hope your quads are bouncing back well.

Love the synopsis.

Best of luck on the NYC lottery. It is certainly an experience to remember. Take the Mrs. and tour NYC after the race.

Mrs T owes you a couple of minutes!

Hey, I'm planning on entering the NYC lottery too. Been to the site a couple of times, but didn't feel the karma, so I'll sign up another day :-) Got to please the lottery gods.
