I did it! I survived my first marathon. My time was a very solid 3:25:07 which is almost five minutes under my goal. Some other things worth noting is that I placed 56th out 307 men entered in the race, 68th out of 600 total runners, fourth in my age group 24-29 and I finished eighth in the hercules category which is for men over 190 pounds. All in all it was a pretty good day. I'll be deciding in a week or two if going to start training for the Portland Marathon which takes place October 1.

hey man. let me be the first to congratulate you via your blog. I would hug you, but you arent here. I actually was pretty excited for you that you did a marathon. So saturday, I waited patiently to see the results posted online and see how dennis cook did. I was very impresed when I saw you name so far up in the rankings.
so Dennis Cook. I salute you.
p.s. you have inspired me a little, so i want to tell you that as soon as I get back from my vacation(early July), I am going to buy myself some running shoes and start training for my own marathon. maybe we will get to run together soon.
