My son Douglas and I ran together the whole race. He's an experienced runner and triathlete who ran the Broad Street Run in Philadelphia on May 6th. Our finish time was 1:26:19, for a pace of 8:38 per mile, better than I expected. I finished 453 out of 3898 total finishers, number 1 out of 40 finishers in my age group!
