    , “Dude, you’re not Molasses Man today”. I smiled, gave him the thmubs up and motored on. Around mile 24 I spotted Dean and Elliptigo Man. I couldn’t resist. I weaved over to the side and gave him the Vickie and Dan “tap” on the should while saying, “Molasses Man coming through. “ I reminded Dean that this was all his fault. For whatever reason I just kept picking up speed. No one passed me in the last three miles. I crossed the finished line with a chip time of 4:07:56. 6 minutes faster than my previous PR and this was just supposed to be a training run?My buddy ran an amazingly patient first marathon and came across with a respectable 4:22:00. The emotional struggle of his last year came pouring out. He was profoundly sad and incredibly happy. I think this marathon marked an end and a new beginning. He even got to tell Dean his story at the Expo and as we’ve all come expect, Dean was incredibly kind.What a weekend. I wish everyone on copy could have been a part this.Many Happy MilesMolasses ManDUDE, THAT WAS AWESOME SEEING YOU OUT THERE! WHAT A GREAT MARATHON. LET’S PUT LA ON THE LIST FOR FUTURE YEARS. LONG RUN MOLASSES MAN!!DEANP.S. IF YOU DON’T SLOW DOWN, WE’RE GOING TO HAVE TO CHANGE YOUR MONIKER
