I Did It!

Today I crossed the finish line of my very first marathon!  It was by far the most difficult thing I’ve ever done, and I probably won’t ever run one again 🙂  It was however one of the most amazing experiences of my life.

The race went great until about mile 20 when I started to have a lot of pain in my left knee.  I had to walk a bit after that, which was disappointing.  But I finished!  And that felt great!

I will write a full race recap and post pictures soon.  But for now I need to rest!  Thanks again for all of the support – it meant a lot and helped me through those last miles.
