As some of you may remember I had the awesome fortune of getting to pick up Meb from the airport this spring. I chatted with him the whole way to his hotel and left the brief meeting feeling like he was a seriously great guy! Totally humble and totally amazing all in one. So you can IMAGINE how pumped I was that he won NYC Marathon yesterday!!! Though I can’t say I’m friends with him or even that I truly know him – I can say that in my personal opinion I totally think he deserved it and couldn’t be happier for him. It’s a nice thing in life when *the good guy wins*
If you don’t follow Ryan Hall’s blog – you should! I loved his entry about the marathon. It’s really nice knowing that it’s not just the average runner that feels the disappointment of a race that doesn’t go the way you wanted it too. Sure he had an amazing time – but it’s not always about the number on the clock compared to others – he didn’t run the way he wanted to run/the way he had dreamed he would run. Some how in some weird way it makes me feel better about my marathon season
Good Luck to everyone running Richmond this weekend!!! I’ve got the marathon bug and totally wish I was out there running too – hehe.
P.S. Congrats to my uncle who ran NYC for the umpteenth time and in usual fashion finished in an impressive time! Congrats also to my blogger friend The Laminator on a seriously fantastic time!
