It's done

5 hours, 11 minutes, and 10 seconds. 5:11:10

As I say a lot on this blog, holy crap. It was hot (almost 80 degrees at the finish) and painful (no blisters, though!) but I finished and was able to stick to my interval for the most part.

It was an experience that will never happen again- my FIRST marathon. The magic of the first one has come and gone, but will always be in my heart and the back of my head as I train for more.

IPROMISE I will post a more extensive entry, but I don't have the time right now. There will be pics too!

Way to go, Marathoner! Well done! You are right, you will always remember this day. Isn't it amazing????

Congrats on the Cardinals. We Eagles fans are used to the misery and heartbreak, and your team deserved to win. I spent a day or two sobbing uncontrollably, curled up in a fetal position, sucking my thumb, but I am fine now! ;)

Way to go Elsbeth - be proud! Art
