One happy camper - The 'two marathons in two weeks' post

Two marathons. Two weeks.

Paris Marathon on April 10th in 4:10:31 and 27/28 degrees Celsius / up in the 80's in Fahrenheit heat.

Today's marathon in - again (damn you Spring marathons) - 27/28 degrees Celsius / up in the 80's in Fahrenheit heat in 3:59:55. Close call, but still. :)

Pr'ed by 10 minutes and 36 seconds, and managed to leave 75% of the women behind me in today's marathon. Apparently the heat was hard on all of us. I'm one happy camper. :)

Congratulations on back-to-back marathons. The fact that you ran a sub 4-hour marathon in that heat is a testament to your fitness and training. You should be very proud of your performance.

All the best,

Ron

That is so awesome! Congrats! Those temps are insane. We have been in the 40s here in Colorado. I'd be kinda psyched for those temps as long as I didn't have to run in them...

GREAT JOB!!!!
