I finished, guys!!  my garmin time was 5:03, my clock time was 5:15, and my tweet my time twitter thing said 5:09... so not sure what's accurate yet.

THE GOOD NEWS is that I ran really strong until mile 18.5 which I'm really proud of.  I ran that portion at a pace much lower than what I thought I could've handled in anticipation of the rest of the race being awful.  My time is slower than I wanted, but somewhere around mile 20 I decided I didn't care any more and just had to do what I had to do.  So it's ok.

Which... it had its dark moments for sure, and a race report will follow once I get some food in me and have a chance :o)

But overall... I feel pretty good!  More soon :o)


  1. WOO HOO! You totally rock.
    I just got back in from my nine miler so I ran some of it with you. ;)

    Eat, refuel and bask in the glow, marathoner.

  2. Yeeha!!! I'm so pleased for you!! I look forward to reading the race report :-)

  3. YAY! Congrats! :) Can't wait to get more details! I totally remember having those dark/bargain with the devil moments during my first marathon, too.

  4. Congratulations! We all knew you'd do it. Can't wait to read your race report.
