Well said NYR. Had my first marathon today in Raleigh (City of Oaks Marathon). Went fairly well, although it was a cold start, and rain right before the start and running in vibrams meant wet feet and some serious blisters. Finished just over 4 hours, actual time should be posted tonight on their website. 1st pic is about around mile 17, second is my buddy who trained with me (his first marathon too).
