RR Tampa

Race Report
Hops Marathon
Tampa, FL

I was so tired Sunday night when I was writing the wake-up call that I didn't even take time to report on my last marathon for 2000!
A bunch of close friends from the BBR club in Dallas visited us to run the inaugural Tampa marathon with me. The course was flat but the weather turned out to be 10 to 15 degrees warmer than forecast. It was 65 degrees at the start and about 78 degrees when we finished. But that was about 10 degrees cooler than the past two marathons so I was able to take 10 minutes off my time to finish in 3:35 and 3rd place in my age group. A nice way to finish off the year! Time to take some rest before I begin the grueling pace again next year!
