Felt like an entire lifetime rolled into 2:37. Wrong turns, bathroom breaks, Mt Lebo reunions... I'm exhausted. The wrong turn sucked, but could have been worse... some dudes probably lost a good 6 minutes.

Great job, Matias!

Matt Ernst said...

Matias, Dave, Luke were all impressive...as were Steve and Dawn in the half. Congrats to all.

DaveO said...

First off big thanks to everyone who helped us out today. You guys rock! I never would have made it up Calvert without Jake and Jason. I tried my best to stay with Matias but he drop me at the top of Calvert like the load he dropped at 17. Matias you ran one hell of a race congratulations. It won’t say it in the results but both you and I know what we really ran. Luke also ran a great race and had a 5 min PR. I didn’t get a chance to tell Kyle or Phillip but they just crushed. All in all I can’t complain about the day. My IT band stayed together, I didn’t have to do what Matias did (I lost three minutes in my first marathon doing that) and I felt great, so getting lost for two minutes or so I can deal with. Below are my splits and again thanks to everyone who was out there.
5:43,6:02, 5:59, 5:53, 5:55, 5:56, 5:54, 5:59, 6:05, 5:40, 5:51, 5:48; 6:02, 5:53, 5:54, 5:48, 7:55 (WTF), 5:53, 5:59, 6:39, 6:07, 6:15, 5:50, 6:13, 6:28 (Ouch), 6:14, 2:39:42.

Dawn said...

If it makes the marathoners feel any better about getting lost the half marathoners ran longer. We didn't get lost we just ran a course that was approx. 13.6 miles instead of the advertised 13.1.

Congrats to all National finishers!

Steve Money said...

Thanks to those out on the course. It was good to see familiar faces. I felt much better this week than last week. I think I needed that first race of the season to get the lead out. I couldn't keep up with the top half marathon packs and found myself alone at mile 10 when the group of marathoners I was running with split off. Managed to keep it together for the last three, though, feeling pretty good. Yes, the last 1.1 was long, by a couple of minutes. Enjoyed seeing Matias and Dave finish. Nice job guys.

Matias said...

We should remember to enter as a team next time... pretty sure G'town running company coming in 3,5,7,8,13 would have won the five watches they were giving away to the top team.

I have a real good feeling about this team, we could do some damage this summer and really go after it at the Army ten miler.

My quads feel like bricks.

Great support all over the course from from you guys, thanks! I was just hanging on out there and it would be getting kind of lonely (Rock Creek especially), but then I would see someone I knew and it totally revved me up. Everyone was really rolling out there today! That course tears the body up, I am struggling. Good luck recovering, buy some ice and take a bath in it. -Luke
