I’m a little behind on posting about last weekend, but Twin Cities Marathon weekend was a blast. TCM continues to be one of the best run events in the country – now all they need to do is get USATF to modify their headphones policy and it will be perfect (as Portland Marathon race director Les Smith said in a Pioneer Press story – “what a bunch of dorks”).
My kids participated in the family events on Saturday for the fourth or fifth year in a row: the older one in the 5K and the younger one in the one mile. Two things surprised me in the 5K – the winning time of 14:49 was pretty amazing and 11-year-old John O’Hagan of Denver beat the entire women’s field, with a time of 19:18.
The expo at RiverCentre was great – quick and easy number pick-up and lots of good vendors and freebies.
More on the big race coming soon…Originally published by DK on October 12, 2008 at 12:52 am
