Swan Lake quick summary

Finished, no major damage (but a bit more minor damage), not fast (but when was the last time I was), wore my orange shoes (they sure were noticeable and worked mostly), I even met a few nice folks and some of them are pretty well known at least in the maniac world.

Swan Lake is an extremely well put on event - friendly volunteers, great and frequent aid stations, easy logistics, ok weather considering how bad it could have been. I love small marathons they are so much more appealing at least to me.

I learned a few things that I need to figure out which I will include in the long version? One of the lessons that I am starting to learn is to quit beating myself up when the day doesn't go as planned.

That sums it up, I do have a lot more to say but it will take me a few days to work my way through it (at least in a semi-coherent fashion).
