...yes I said Marathon :) What an amazing experience. I'm so happy I got to share it my buddies - CJ, Suzi & our coach Lisa. Started off with very tight calves and my feet were almost asleep for the 1st 3 miles - same thing happened to me at the WHM in FL - got over that by mile 6. We hit the 1/2 mark at 2:33 and felt great! Nature called at mile 16 and I got separted from Suzi. Just when I thought I was out of steam, my good friend and running coach met me at mile 20 and ran with me to the finish. Got a burst of energy and sprinted across the finish! I wanted 5:30 and just made it. It was so cool to have several friends and my hubby at the finish. Have to admit I cried when I got across the finish line....will I do another full? Not sure...yes, that wasn't a no....thanks to all my DM friends who inspire me everyday! And congrats to all who ran thier race yesterday.

    I'm so happy for you, Nancy! What a great accomplishment! I'm sure you're still smiling today--what a great feeling! I was thinking of you yesterday and hoping that everything went well and now I'm so glad to read that it did! In every marathon I've done (finished four now), I've had a friend to run the final miles with me. That, in my opinion, makes all the difference. So happy that you had so much support along the way and at the finish line. Congratulations on finishing your first marathon!!

    Congrats!! I did not realize this was your first. Making your goal too, how awesome. Glad those calf and feet issues went away early on. How cool that your coach/friend ran in with you. Now time to relax and enjoy the memory. Then think about the next.
