Tom and Bobby not feeling any pain yet
Wow that wind was brutal at the 2009 Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon. Tom and I got through it, though at a snails pace. It was Tom's first marathon so I decided to stay with him for the company and to help him get to the finish line. He had some bleeding feet and some stomach issues at one point but he hung tough and forged ahead. Due to some injuries, the most miles Tom had ran up til the marathon was 18 miles, that's an 8.2 mile increase. Most people will never even run 8 miles. I say "Well done Tom. It was a pleasure running with you. I hope you have many more marathons in your future".
