great Running, cheering, and just having fun 14.34 mi 01:50 07:39 pace

Met up with a buddy and ran 11 mile in which he held a stronger pace then I thought that he was. We were thinking 8 but came in around 7:45. I decided to put in a couple more miles and head down riverview paralleling the Towpath where the marathon was being ran. My timing was perfect as I was able to see and Cheer on @Greg S. twice as I saw him just before the turn around and I ran up to just short of Ira and did some cheering there as well. I ran my 1.5 or whatever it was back to the car and headed up to Peninsula and once again I could not have timed it any better. As soon as I got to the trail the leader just came through and shortly after was able to cheer Greg on again. I then headed up to Vaughn Road where I was able to get a double dip for cheering as they came through here around mile 19/20 and on the return at about mile 24. Greg looked really good and strong and as all of you know by now got an excellent 2nd place showing. It was a nice busy morning and was fun to get to see the marathon and cheer the runners on.

    @Sarah G. It was a lot of fun and since I know the course like the back of my hand as most of my weekend runs are over these areas, I knew the best places to go. Greg looked really strong out there and had a good gap on 3rd which happened to be the first woman runner. She looked really good as well and I am assuming she hit a sub 3.

    @Mike I had it a lot easier then the racers. What was great as I was waiting at the last stop for Greg to come back I was able to do a lot of hip flexor stretching and they feel great. I did have a blast.

    Thanks again for your support David, it meant a lot to have friendly support out there, I was hurting more than last year in the last 6+ miles. Yes, the first female did break 3:00 and finish third by about 16 seconds, only 4 came in under 3:00 today. Another solid long run for you too, can't wait to see what you do at Harrisburg.

    @Greg S. No problem at all. That is why I went to Vaughn Road as I knew I could catch you at around mile 20 and 24 when it really matters the most. That is the one thing I enjoyed at Akron was the cheering from miles 20 to 24 which make a difference. For suffering, you still looked good and strong.
