Just curious where the 4:00 pace group finished. I chatted with the first pacer before the race and she said they'd be running 9:07's but I hung back for the first few miles and my splits were 9:05, 9:01, and 9:01. She was well ahead of me. ... See MoreSee Less

Big thanks to the 3:45 pacers. You helped me beat my time at Baystate from 15 years ago. You two plus the guy just in front of me with the shirt that read "put old on hold" helped keep me on track. ... See MoreSee Less

What’s up with that? When I shop at Home Depot and buy a tool for $75, they don’t charge me $79.33. [...]
