Have had a real chill day today....couldn't be bothered getting out of bed this morning so didn't till around 8.45....
The body knows it raced a marathon
Have a very sore is swollen under the nail is not as sore today as it was last night so will see what it is like over the next day or so.....

The most amazing thing today was whne I saw the results.....they are only provisional however am stoked with them....

3hrs: 06.19 placing at this point was 187 out of a field of nearly 600.....
I am absolutely stoked with that...was looking to get a place in the upper 200"s but to get under 200th place is amazing.....
I can suffer the aches and pains as a result of such an amazing result....
The rain that we were supposed to get yesterday has a riived today....
I just know that God held it back yesterday so the race could be held with out it...yay....

Thats me basking in my glory

    Wonderful results. The aches and pains are just little reminders that you gave it your all and succeeded. Saves you from having to pinch yourself to see that you are not dreaming.LOL

Congrats and well done.

HAve done the marathon good and proper this

Am so so stoked with my unofficial time....around 3hrs 6 mins...I realize there will be some seconds added to that and I got such a shoch when I crossed the finish line and it said 3hrs 11mins I didn't llok at the seconds....wasn't till my daughter said to me that all the walkers had to take 5mins off their time as we started 5 mins after the runners that I was totally stoked .....

The length of the race was 21.5k's....

Looking foreward to getting the official time in tomorrows paper....

My daughter ran it in I think....around 2hours 35mins....however she has been so busy working she lost sight of any training so it was a good time for her with out training.....

My thighs were hurting form the 15k and one foot started as well and I just told my body to "suck it up" ....had a great chance of an awesome time for me and I was going for

The hurting isn't quite so bad now 2 hours after I finished
Am off to the prize giving ...maybe I will have my number drawn out for a prize.....first time for everything.....

Thats to daughter isn't coming with me....
Then on to a pot luck dinner at church.....

Catch you all tomorrow after a great nights sleep....I know I will have

The first day of the weekend is almost over......
Funeral went well today although hubby got a bit lost one part of it and had to do a bit of a recovery....all good though....he did very well....especially for his first one.....

Have kinda been home chilling for the arvo although the pastors form our night church have been here with the go karts that they have helped some kids build from scratch....
Needed hubbies expertise to get them going properly....

Am quite tired and really have no idea why however will chill for the rest of the night....maybe another wine and some dinner and then possibly an eary night ready for the race tomorrow....
I am sure I will get into the groove of it all tomorrow.....
to be honest at the moment I would really like the race to be a week away not a
Never will be great.....
Catch you all tomorrow after the race.....

    It was a long day - no wonder you're tired! And I think sometimes mental / emotional 'work' takes more out of us than the physical work. Still, a day to feel good about, which is always a plus!

My Friday is nearly over....
I have been kept fairly busy all day today....
Left home at lunch time....dropped my daughter off at her work.....went to see the funeral director and finish sorting out the service etc....
Went into town then....
Went to get my glasses seen to as I am over the headaches that i have been having and thye retested my eyes and one of my lenses have been over corrected...they are going to redo it and hopefully my heaches and the pain behind my eyes should go....
After that I went to work to drop off some documents that I had filled out for a student...
Then decided that i would have a cuppa on campus to fill in time before I could go get our race packs....then it was up to see the family to finalise arrangements....
arrived home 2 mins before hubby....caughtup with him then it was off again.....needed to get my daughters car into town so she could drive home after she finishes work tonight at some crazy hour and also we had a student BBQ to go to....only stayed about an hour then came home to finish off the service for tomorrow.....
All done now and ready for bed....

Will need to be up resonably early tomorrow as funeral is 10.30am and we need to be there around 10am....

Night everyone

    One of those days where you're constantly on the go, but at least at the end of the day you know you've accomplished some things - and that's a good feeling, ain't?
