Just terrible conditions. It is really cold, but not QUITE cold enough to turn rain into snow (snow would be much more manageable). So you are soaking wet and just get chilled to to bone the entire time.
Then you add on a relentless headwind. Like, a straight headwind. 25-30 mph.
I've never seen a major marathon - until today - where most of the top contenders decided to wear running jackets the entire way. Their choice was either get hypothermia or add massive wind resistance into 25 mph winds.
Honestly, just standing in full waterproof gear to watch was very unpleasant.
In the face of it, there were some impressive performances across the board. Results are still trickling in, but just all credit to everyone who ran.

As always, omissions are due to incompetence and not malice. Let me know if I missed anyone.

Big kudos to Adams Watkins (aka Robin's husband), Tim, and Barry, for their performances at the Hashawha Hills 50K this past weekend!
- Adam had a come-from-behind win,
- Tim Greszler comes in 3rd - and still makes it out to workouts this week, and
- Barry Hauptman comes in 19th - ditto for workouts.

It is pretty terrifying when someone can run a 2:41 marathon as a training effort, on a pretty darn challenging course. That's what Jeff did this morning, winning the GW Birthday Marathon (the 2nd Dojo-ista to accomplish the feat) in 2:41:16.
Congrats to Jeff!
Congrats to Jeff!

Congrats to the Capitol Hill Gang.
- The Summer of Jenny continues. Jenny Paul comes in 2nd place after a 20 hour international flight. Runs 38:27 (6:12 pace).
- Shlomo cranks to 8th place, with a very impressive 35:09 (5:40 pace).
- Matthew Newman returns to the US distance racing scene. He runs 41:58, which is 6:46 pace.
Way to go everyone!
Also, I wanted to add one result that I missed from a couple weeks back. At the Broad Street Run, Colin McGrath blazed to a 30th overall finish with a 53:43 (5:22 pace over 10 miles).
The result landed him in 2nd on the overall club record books. Congrats Colin!
