What's that smell?

Well, my time just stunk.

Marathon Number One - 4:11:20
Marathon Number Two - 4:12:12
Marathon Number Three - 4:13:24

However, I had an awesome weekend. The route around DC was spectacular and the crowd was great.

I'll be back for more....because I certainly won't be able to die in peace until I reach my perfect 4 hour goal. Here we go marathon number four!

i don't know what you're complaining about...those three times are faster than my first three marathons. =)

you'll nail it, aa, i have faith in you!

You're still wayyyyyyyyyyyy faster than me!

But you can do it! Keep us posted on your training tricks.

One of the really cool things about running is that you basically just compete against yourself.

The marathon is a brutally demanding teacher...probably tougher than your best-known third grade teacher :-)

Put that together and you have much to learn to add to your training for marathon #4.

Few people run ONE marathon. Even fewer persever and run TWO. You are now in rarified atmosphere to know enough from running THREE to be able to very intelligently plan for number FOUR!!!

You'll do it. That was not a speedy course to start with so find a flat one somewhere. I'll take 4:13 in a heartbeat. 4:43 would be fine too.
