    I watched the documentary, "Sick, fat, and nearly dead" and joined their website jointhereboot.com. I juice fruits and veggies and I'm doing a 7 day program.

    Holly, thanks so much for your kind words. I'm not really much of a blogger, so I didn't think to write about the experience.

    My time was terrible due to heat & foot problems after stepping on a rock around mile 11. But I was determined to finish and miraculously, the clock was still running when I did, despite being past the course closing time. So I got an official chip time of 7:50:49, which was 1:20 longer than my training estimate of 6:30.

    I can't say enough about the amazing folks at the Space Coast Marathon, they made it truly memorable.
