Normally, I follow Saturday (or Sunday) long runs with a shower, breakfast, and a big nap. This Saturday, after about 12.5, I had places to go, people to see, and a dog who wanted to go to the lake. So, by the time I headed home after all of that, in the rain around 6, I was very, very sleepy. However, the women's marathon was on. I strained to see local phenom (and nemesis) Liza Hunter-Galvan - and she was with the lead pack for half of the run. She got mentioned as the oldest runner (39) and finished 35th. Quite the run after finishing 51st in Athens. Incidentally, the winner is 38 years old - I told you this was a tough age group (like I can run as fast as those ladies)!
