PBJ - what a treat to meet you and the family. I was able to recognize you immediately from the photo of Tall trying to choke you. Congratulations on your amazing time - I am sure this will get worted out soon!
Please thank each PBJster for the candy corn cookies - the 6th one was just as tasty as the first. Orange dyed sugar cookies with white and dark chocolate frosting go down in my book as a keeper!
PBJ you are an awesome runner!!! Congrats on the marathon of a lifetime. Dale is right..what now???? Thanks for a great report.
Sorry to hear about the results screw up. The results on the HMF web site are listed as preliminary and has the following paragraph
Question on your results?
Send an email to email@example.com - include your name, bib number and any pertinent details. Please allow us 48 hours to research your inquiry before contacting us again. Thank you.
Have you contacted them? Hope it all gets straightened out.
PS: It was great to see the long suffering family...what a great bunch they are!!!
First of all congratulations on joining the sub 3 club. That was a key goal of mine too this year. Your training has been excellent, you deserve all the recognition you will get for this significant achievement. When do we get to run together again...running after you at Boston made me faster..any wager does....How about sub 2:50 for next year???? I will even wear a costume!!!
Way to go buddy. I owe you a few beers.
Great Run PBJ. You rollout a top notch effort -whatever the task. Keep those flippers poised yet calm. I'm sure by now, or will very soon, someone has arrived at your door to teach you the sekkrit sub3 handshake.
Thanks for that picture hally. Shouldn't that be preserved on Boomer wiki?
A fantastic race Joe. Congrats to ya! You probably don't know it but I have been chasing your shadow since I joined the B&B a few years back. You have demonstrated that with perserverence, it CAN be done so maybe I'll work on it a little more. As to other life goals, well I think you could handle a 100 miler, don't you? Umstead in April 2009? I'll let you win. (Be there or be square.)
Hi to LS & the PBJsters. Quite the support crew you you have there.
Savor it Joe.
La Tortuga, it can't possibly be that the 6th cookie tasted as good as the 1st. Your marginal utility per cookie consumed will always fall with each successive cookie.
Take Snickers bars as an example. I really enjoy that first Snickers bar in a day. It gives me, let's say, 14 utils of consumption delight. The next one I eat that day is also really good, but I get 10 utils of delight from it. The third is merely "good", and I get 3 utils of delight from it. I sorta like the 4th Snickers I eat that day, gaining 1 more util of delight. The 5th -- I am indifferent, gaining no delight at all.
You'd have to pay me to eat the 6th Snickers bar that day, meaning that the marginal utility for me has gone negative.
Of course, the PBJ family cookies were probably still providing very positive marginal utility for you, even at the 6th one. But if you increased that, your added utils would surely go negative at some point (maybe a few batches).
Hmmm. Is this an experiment we need to test?
A huge congratulations PBJ!!! Nice job training and keeping it all together during the race...a sub-3 is a dream for most and you nailed it!
I would love to hear more about how the race itself went. Did you run with others or alone?
PBJ – You are an amazing runner – sub-3 – wow! Congratulations! It must be because of that great fan club behind you. !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/smile.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/smile.gif|border=0!
As a certified paper-pusher, you don’t know how comforting it was for me to find this Race Report Template. I only wish I had found this before, and saved myself untold fines from race report fauz pas....
Did you not drink any water at all during the race?
PBJ - you are such a nut, but holy makeral can you ever run! Congratulations on the PR and sub 3, absolutely fantastic, and I love the Go PBJ sign. Incredible running, congrats again.
