Philadelphia Marathon 
I completed the Philadelphia Marathon yesterday. Being my second marathon, it was easy to set a PR. I beat my time in the Pittsburgh Marathon by 11 minutes.

4:20:16
9:56 pace
6730 out of 11422 finishers

My goal was a 4:15 and, up to around mile 15 or so, I was around a 9:10 pace and had a good shot at a low 4 finish. I never hit the wall but by mile 18 the feet and hamstrings were beginning to hurt. I didn't walk too much during this one, maybe 5-8 times for under a minute each time.

I high-fived Mayor Nutter at the finish line!

Overall, a well organized marathon; lots of enthusiastic spectators and great volunteers.
