Well, Justin Gimelstob won his bet with Andy Roddick, as he finished the New York City Marathon in 4:09:58, well under the 4:45 that Roddick predicted he wouldn’t finish within.

I’m sure Laura Skladzinski, his running mate had a large part to do with it.

And my new hero, Edison Pena, Miner #12 finished in 5:40:51. Pena was having trouble with his knees and had to stop between mile 19 and 20 to ice. He could have quit, but he didn’t. His goal was to finish the marathon in 6 hours and he was determined to do whatever it took.

Congrats to Justin, Edison and everyone else who ran today in the New York City Marathon.

What an inspiring day!

    Thanks so much for the kind words, Ed! I will be posting a full race report in the next day or so – a lot of what Justin and I went through in terms of mental toughness fits nicely with your site. Please of course feel free to contact me with any questions.
