Ryan is such a sweetheart! When we are talking to others, that may or may not know us that well, about our athletic adventures Ryan often brings this up. He says, “Considering experience, age and gender my wife may be a better athlete than me.” I always tend to laugh in my head because Ryan is a stud at what he does!
Ryan goes on to explain how I have only been racing for two years and he has ran since he was 5. He tells about our different experiences and such.
Now I know Ryan has always had a hard time with marathons (several years back when he tried them). I also remember Ryan saying I might beat his personal record (PR) during my first marathon. His PR is a 3 hour 56 minute marathon. On my first marathon I completed a 3:58. Close but did not beat his PR. On my second marathon which was back in April I finished 6 minutes faster than my first year. I completed a 3:52! Which I was super excited about.
It JUST occurred to me last Thursday that I beat Ryan’s PR for a marathon! HA! I’m not laughing at the fact that I beat his PR, but I am laughing at the fact here it is 6 months later and I just now realized it!
I must say when Ryan had his stints in marathons he was not in nearly as good shape as he is in now. I think he could do some awesome stuff now at a marathon! I mean in Switzerland he did the same pace for his 18 mile run as he did for his PR just on the marathon and that was after he already had ran and biked for over 6 hours!
