Bluenose Marathon - Scott Clark's PB

(photo from the Guardian)

Congratulations Scott on your Personal Best time of 2:49:22.7 at Sunday's Bluenose Marathon in Halifax!

Alex now has a new race stat to carry around in his head, replacing your last PB stat. (For those who don't know, Alex has a head full of race stats - from world and Olympic records, sprint to marathon, to Canadian, PEI School and RoadRunner Race course records as well as PB times of many runners, local and internationally famous.... truly scary the stuff he knows) Alex just set a PB at Scott's race so only fair that Scott should go on to set one himself. Well done Scott.

Congratulations as well to Brynley Horsefield, a Bluefield High School student who ran his first Marathon and finished in 3:55:33, 84th overall and 2nd in his division (Male 19 & under). Alex went to school with Brynley's brother Ben and Alex's brother Ben goes to school with Brynley. Ben (our Ben) and Brynley have played soccer with and against each other for years too. Bluefield started a Marathon Club last fall and we saw Brynley out at a few RoadRunner races since. I hope we'll see him out to more in the future. Alex would have loved to be part of a Marathon Club in High School.

Congrats to all our Island runners who braved yet another wet Marathon in Halifax (the 3rd rainy run in 4 years).

I'm looking at that hypothermia blanket Scott is wearing like a toga and contemplating the date - end of May and not much above zero. When do you folks get the warm weather?

Mylar blankets seem to be as much a part of the finish line at marathons as finishing medals, no matter what the weather however.... although it was in the 20's (C) a couple of weeks ago it was snowing last night here. The forecast is for it to be in the 20's again by the end of this week.
