Mark it in the books...I'm an official marathoner. I'm posting this from my phone so it will be short and sweet...my medal has a long story of random outbursts of tears, key text messages, lots of potty stops (I may have set a record folks) and the best timing ever of running into new and old friends along the way. I will post a full race recap tomorrow when I can get to a computer ... Garmin stats were 5:20:17 for 26.55 miles. A lot slower than I was hoping for, but I'm pretty happy with the fact that I finished. Thanks for all the bloggy love I felt!
