4:30 or Bust: A Quest for Marathon Mediocrity

Flying Pig Marathon Results

with 3 comments

A race report will probably come at some point in the next couple of weeks, but for now, here are the details of how I did today at the Flying Pig Marathon.  My goal was 4:45, and ultimately would be happy with anything under 5 hours.  I finished in 4:58:04, and had a great time, so overall I’m happy.  I had trouble trying to push the pace today but overall was pretty consistent, as you can see by the splits shown below.  In fact, I finished much stronger compared to others with similar pace.  My overall place was 2928, but my place was better in the 2nd half of the race (2702), and really strong in the last mile (1983).  I did pass a lot of people in the last 2 miles, in my push to beat 5 hours.  I’ll take it.

Marathon #15 and state #9

My slowest marathon since NYC Marathon 2002.

  1. Nice job Scott. In my book, any time someone can complete a marathon, that in itself is a victory. I look forward to hearing more about the Flying Pig. I was going to run it this year if I hadn’t gotten injured.

  3. Great job! I agree with Michael, a marathon finish is a marathon finish, regardless of time!
