My Mom, the Marathoner, Part IV

My mother ran her fourth marathon yesterday, the Run Together Nike Women’s Marathon ’07 in San Francisco. Her results will be at nikemarathon.com soon. She described it as her PW,1 but claimed it was a “nice run.” ;-)

I’m not sure I’d ever describe a marathon as “nice” — a twelve-minute video virtual tour of the race course was too long for me. Maybe if I could have run just the “Chocolate Mile.”

Congratulations, mom!

Update: The race results have been posted. My mom finished in 5:27:58, first in her age class. Go, Mom, go!

Mom runs her first marathon

Yesterday, at age 74.75, my mother ran the California International Marathon, her first marathon. With an elapsed time of 5:12:26, she qualified to run the 110th Boston Marathon.

I’m so proud of her.

Update: Mom did better than qualify for Boston, she ran it!
