3:04:22 Marathon at Revel Mt. Charleston

Congrats to our client Bill Drinkward on earning a new PR at the Revel Mt. Charleston Marathon in Las Vegas! He writes,

“Wow… what a special day at Revel Mt Charleston Marathon in Nevada. Despite a frigid wait in 24 degree temperatures for 90 minutes, I was able to shake out the stiffness and cold to get the legs moving well soon after starting.

With careful pacing, I was able to save enough energy to execute a negative split on the course and finish 3rd in my age group (M55-59) as well as PR/BQ. Many thanks to MTA Coach Steven for helping me complete my best marathon build up yet and finish in 3:04:22.

But the magic of the day didn’t stop there. My daughter Cara was also with me to race her second marathon. She astonished me by screaming into the finisher chute hot on the heels of the 3:30 pacer and completing a 30 minute PR and a BQ time of 3:29:21. The thought of running Boston next year if she is accepted is just too good to be true for this proud dad.
And yet even more magic … getting to say hello to Trevor and Angie in the finisher area was awesome too.”
