Old name

On a lark I checked to see if my finishing partner from 2006—“Monica Nielsen”, in 2006 she was listed as a 26 year old female from Kingwood; that is precisely everything I know about her except for vaguely what she looks like after 26 miles of running—ran the marathon again.  I can’t find any mention of her in either 2007 or 2008’s marathon finishing database.


I don’t see her running or finishing in the full or half in 2007 or 2008.  Oh well.  She was a one hit wonder just as I was.


Maybe she got married and “Monica Nielsen” ceased to exist and “Mrs. Monica SomethingElse” has taken her place?  Maybe she WAS married and had a kid, like me, and largely quit running?  Maybe she got a job outside of the city and moved away?  Who knows.  It would have been neat to find out that she kept running, though.  Cest la vie.
