Great job Brian!

Surfing and diving sounds like a great break, but having just returned from a dive trip in Bonaire I'll warn you - I forgot how diving uses VERY different muscles!

@Brian - nice bib collection, and only one years worth.

Hi Brian,
Congrats on the NYC Marathon finish. Interesting to hear how the salt helped. I will try that on my next long run. Keep up the good work.

Brian....I am running in the Dublin ( Ireland) marathon next Oct. if you would like to join my running group. We will be running for and raising money for the Cancer society as we have a few runners who are also cancer survivors... I am the only T1 runner in my group.
It is a mixed group both men and women going... Enjoy a few days of rest.. I have a 15k on Sunday.

Thanks jljr! I think a little bit of a break sounds good. So does a fast 10k! :) I might take a vacation in Dec. Hoping to do some surfing and diving in Panama.

Thanks! You can see where my low BG started to affect me around mile 22.

Wow!! Awesome medal! If you are going to go low, I guess 26.2 is a good place to do it, since they have lots of snacks on hand!! Congratulations on your amazing achievement!!
