I did it!!!! I finished the Philadelphia Broad Street Run!!! This is the biggest 10-miler in the country. I think there was over 40,000 people. I kept a consistent pace and NO walking! Lots of folks looked tired crossing the finish but I was beaming, grinning ear to ear. A woman came in right behind me in tears (of joy) saying she couldn't believe she finished. I patted her on the back and told her Congratulations and Great Job!!!! I knew exactly how she felt.
Now....on to that Half Marathon!
