My friend, Ken finishing with good spirit

Michelle is almost done with a 3:32 PR

Michelle's revenge for the hot day in Boston 6 weeks earlier with a personal best of 3:32:42

We went up to Burlington as a small group, Michelle's parents, our good friend, Cynthia (you can see a lot more of her later in the entry about her wedding in the fall of 2005) and the two of us.

While it is pretty flat, there is a famous hill in the course. It is doubly so because a group of Japaneese style drummers are permanent fixtures at its bottom. They are tremendously good entertainment, although Michelle said that from her perspective they were less positive- they signalled a nasty hill coming from miles.

Let me (Charlie) mention that 6 weeks in between marathons is not great- it is too long time to feed off the training for the first, too close to be able to get some more good quality training in.
