      Woohoo! So proud of you for pushing through the marathon training right until the very last run. 3km on Saturday to remind you legs that there's work to do on Sunday, and then...the longest but the best run of your life. You should read through some of the entries along the way to remember that it wasn't always easy and that you never quit. Love you.
