  1. I am so thrilled for both of you guys and can’t wait to read all about it!! I hopped on over to the BAA website yesterday to ensure the heat hadn’t gotten the better of you and was chuffed to see your results! CONGRATULATIONS!!!

  2. Congrats Marlene and Mark – you guys earned those jackets and medals for sure!!! Can’t wait to see the race report.

  3. Congratulations Marlene and hub! Job very well done.

    I took a sneak preview yesterday to see if you both were finished and was happy to see you did.

    Now bring on the full story :)

  4. congrats. the weather you endured sounded like how it was for chicago 2010, kudos for sticking it out. weather like that makes for tough marathon running!

  5. I cannot wait to hear more about the race! I’m slooooowwwwwllllllly getting back to a semi-normal life over here, but absolutely was thinking of you during the race and hoping the heat wasn’t too unbearable. Congrats!!

  6. Congrats! I can’t wait to hear how it really went! I thought of you on race day! It was crazy hard to find people down there, and I had no idea the time in the athletes village would fly like it did! Nice job!

  7. CONGRATS!!! i ended up deferring to next year… :( im 5 months pregnant so i figured it wasnt worth the risk. kind of a bummer but next yr will be equally as fun. congrats though! what an accomplishment-it was hot!!

  8. New reader here….and fellow Boston runner (or survivor/endurer/finisher, depending upon your perspective!)…….that was one heck of a day out there. Enjoyed reading your recap! Congrats!

  9. Awesome job you two. Did you feel my eyes boring into the backs of your heads while I was stalking you online?

    My only question is, why no hats?? Just asking, because I’m an old lady!
