  1. Nice work!

    What shoes did you wear?

    • Pete Larson says:

      Sean – went with the Saucony Kinvara, and it worked out great. Near perfect
      shoe for marathon distance, though I’d prefer a bit less cushion in a
      shorter race.

  2. Pete,

    That’s great! I’m looking forward to the full report. You may recall that we are in a similar place in regards to our training, ages, shoes (I was debating on whether to wear my Kinvaras or not…), etc. and that we corresponded some about our respective efforts to BQ. I’m running Chicago next weekend and still formulating my plan. Looking forward to hearing how it unfolded for you, what shoes you wore, and what pacing strategy you used. Again, well done!

    Dang Pete, that is just great! Please do yourself a favor and recovery conservatively. I know how pleased you must be with that wonderful run.

    whoops, recover

  5. AWESOME! Congrats on the BQ!!

    The weather was great up here in Milan. It must have been fantastic in Hampton. Can’t wait to hear all about the race.

  8. Way to go, Pete!

    Great job, Pete! Looking forward to your report!

  10. Gratz Pete! Hard work pays off, it does that every time.
    (was it the combo of perfect footstrike and magic shoes?) 🙂
    Science makes us fast.

  11. Ross Jungers says:

    Congratulations, Pete. See you in Boston!

  12. Congrats!

  13. Congrats Pete! I am so happy for you. I look forward to reading your race report!

  14. Awesome, congrats on the BQ!

  15. Running Bird says:


  16. Congrats, dude! That’s a great accomplishment. Have fun at Boston!

  17. Congratulations, Pete!

  18. So glad we got to BQ together! Maybe they’ll let me in the same corral as you!
