Ran a 3:32:57 in the St. George Marathon last weekend ... it was in St. George, Utah, in the southwestern corner of the state. Flew into Vegas and drove the two hours to St. George, passing through a corner of Arizona. Very pretty race... they started us off before dawn, with the contours of the road lit by glow-sticks on poles. By the time I was finished, tho, it was around 10 a.m. and the sun was high in the sky.

St. George was my ninth marathon, I believe ... I didn't approach my PR of 3:18 set in Chicago, unfortunately, due to some slacking off over the summer. New York has too many distractions!
