Congrats to @mburns1214 on his 2:59:59 marathon!

You can't nail your goal time any better than this.  His goal was 2:59:59, and hit it squarely on the head--a hefty 6:42 off of his October 2008 PR of 3:06:41.

Her story:  How to Lose 55 lbs and Run a Marathon in 7 Months

I completely empathize with the experience of going out way too fast in the marathon, despite the fact that in my first marathon, I did it to myself.  [She was trying to stick with a pace group.]

55 pounds in 7 months and running a marathon in 4:10.

Of course, she's not done.  She's going to qualify for Boston--3:40:59.

As she says at the end of her story:

I truly think that anyone can do whatever it is they want as long as they have a goal, motivation, and most of all, support. Ordinary people can do extraordinary things.
