mark it in the books...


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!

congratulations! a marathon strips you bare and shows you what you are made of. and you--my friend--are made of steel. way to stick with it and never give in to the *constant* temptation to quit. we all feel it, every step of the way...the lingering doubt that we are capable. but you proved that you are!!!! way to be!!!
