    As I indicated in my previous blog post, the goal for this years Las Vegas marathon was to pace my wife Helen in for a personal best, and a Boston qualifying time goal of 3 hours, 50 minutes. I am very happy to report our MISSION COMPLETE! We smashed her goal and finished in 3 hours, 44 minutes. The time clock in the finish photo above differs from the actual chip time due to over FOUR minutes of congestion getting through the crowds at the start line!

    Helen and I made a deal years ago to do the Boston marathon together, so outside of Ironman training, we’ve both been trying to qualify for Boston. I got lucky and hit my 3 hours, 20 minute time last year, so it looks like we will both be going to Boston in April.

    We were in Las Vegas with Helen’s sister and AOG photographer extraordinaire Jennifer Armand and her husband Cyrille. It was Cyrille’s first marathon and I designed his training program and coached him through it. Our goal for Cyrille was 3:30 and he finished in 3:28 AND a Boston marathon qualification! That’s amazing for a first marathon!!!
