And it was. I finished in under 4 hours, thanks to a brother who jumped in at the right time to pace me and a brother-in-law who gave me some great form tips. It was very nice to see the parents there, and even nicer to see their amazement at all the "old" people who run these things. Nicest of all was the huge chocolate milk my mom brought to the finish line.
Of course I signed up for another.
