alright Chicago Marathon 2011!! 26.2 mi 04:54 11:13 pace

AHHHH CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S DONE! so excited that I did my first marathon but that being said it was definitely not as smooth sailing as I'd hoped.

1. My hour spent in the medical tent post race with a doctor reprimanding me for running with a 102 fever definitely clued me in to the fact that I probably shouldn't have run yesterday.

2. So on that note, considering the big gaps in my training, the flu, the injuries, and the heat I was just happy to finish. I'm so proud of all you DMers who did so well in that heat because after mike 15, my body was done!

3. I HAVE to do another marathon. Not because yesterday was so enjoyable ( amazing experience overall but ROUGHEST stuff for awhile!) but because I know I can do better with a little luck and more training.

Thanks to all of you guys who supported me these past months for this marathon. Meant a lot to have all your support!

Maybe see you at the race next year! But until then, its elevators for a few days...

    Way to go Hayley! That's pretty hardcore running with a fever. Hope you're pounding the OJ and chicken soup now.
