Twin Cities Marathon 2009

Male open: Jason Hartmann of Concord, Mass won the race in a time of 2:12:16.
Female open winner: Isla Paulson of New York City won with a time of 2:31
Cool weather- race time 47 degrees F.
A later note: Cool weather and little wind created conditions for some of the best times finishing times in years. Runners looked comfortable and assured as they cruised by at mile 25. The crowds along the roadside were smaller than usual and quieter - Mostly comprised of relatives and friends of the participants. This is my observation. I did not go to the finish line, and I did not linger to view the over-4 hour participants.
