So. Um. Yeah. I ran a marathon last weekend :)

My first 26.2...done!

I traveled to Florida over Thanksgiving weekend to run the Space Coast Marathon with many of my running buddies, including a handful of Sparkers. It was quite the experience! I'm admit it, I was quite nervous during the race, and in the last 6-7 miles and the couple of hours after, I wondered what on earth I had done to myself! But, in the end, I'm incredibly proud and glad that I did this. And I'm definitely on board with doing more in the future. Here are links to the race recap, in two parts.

    Congratulations!!! It was good to see you at Space Coast. I spoke to you, but I don't think you knew who I was... or you were just REALLY nervous. I know exactly how you felt, though. I was so nervouse before my first, someone had to help me pin my bib number on because my hands were shaking so badly! LOL

Way to go, Marathoner!

    Congrats. You have now done what less than 4% of Americans have done - ran a marathon and can call yourself a marathoner.

    No words can convey just how proud I am of you. You know that I watch you like a hawk and analyze every move you make. I have learned alot from you. You and I have several opportunities to run again in 2012 and that means the world to me. Thank you for being YOU! Quirkiness and all!
