115th Boston Marathon
- Everything I expected and more, and one of the greatest honors of my life!
- New Word Record time set by Geoffrey Mutai of Kenya - 2:03:02 (but not an official World Record because of race conditions)
- Perfect weather of 50 degrees with 14 mph tailwind
- Marathon officials, volunteers, and locals treated runners like "royalty" the whole time we were in Boston
- Best organized race and packet pick-up from start to finish that I've experienced at any event
- Boston is clean, historic, friendly, and easy to navigate city with tons of wonderful places to eat pre and post race
- Marathon finishers listed with finishing times in the Boston Globe the next day
- I've never had a greater sense of accomplishment than when I raised my hands as I crossed the finish line
- PR'd and qualified again for 2012 Boston Marathon with a 3:20:35
