The weather in Missoula was perfect for a 26.2 mile run. It was in the mid-40's at the start before dawn in Frenchtown and in the 70's as we completed the run. I had a wonderful time, even though everything that could fail electronically for me did – my run/walk timer alarm system failed at the start and about mile 15 my Garmin watch which tells me my pace and how long and far I have run went blank. I just kept running and at the end finished with a time of 4:38 - close to my personal best since I returned to running marathons five years ago and enough to come in second in my age group. I couldn't have been happier!
