I knocked out the Honolulu Marathon yesterday. I didn't quite make my goal of under four hours but finished with a pretty good time considering I didn't train at all for this run. My time was 4 hours, 22 minutes. I started out pretty good, despite the fact that it rained on us through most of the morning. Around mile 18, both my calves started to cramp. I believe it was from being cold during the rain and then warming up. I actually felt both of them pop when trying to run. I had to stop for a minute and stretch them out. Then I got back to running. After finishing, I got a massage and then headed home. When I got home, Goy wanted to go grocery shopping. I guess it was quite commical watching me trying to get around after running 26.2 miles. I was in some pain but, of course, Goy and Damien showed no sympathy...they pretty much made fun of me the whole time. I'm a little sore this morning, but not too bad.

Great job Shane. I admire you folks who not only survived the weather conditions Sunday but finished the race with very respectable times.
