Marathon results

I had a successful marathon this year. I finished the 26.2 miles in 3 hours 35 minutes and 27 seconds. That was almost 23 minutes faster than my Masters personal record. Fast enough to place second in my age group. The marathon field was 1647 runners and I finished 367 overall beating a lot of much younger runners. All that just a few days before my 63rd birthday.
This was my first marathon age group award placing but I am hoping for more.
I also signed up for the Boston Marathon again this year. I was lucky that I submitted my entry the morning of the first day of registration. The race filled up in less than eight hours this year.
The smaller medal is a finishers medal, the larger the second place medal.
