Marathon update coming soon...

Probably tomorrow I'll post a full brief of my marathon experience with pictures, etc, but today I'm too tired to write anything coherent. It was great: loved the first 8 miles, the crowd was awesome, I high fived anyone with there hand out and I was like, 'what are these people talking about, this is going to be easy'. The second half of the race was tough. Mile 15-16 was torture. Ran out of gas around mile 23. Could barely move. Pulled it together on mile 25 and finished strong; managed to sprint the last 100 yards - wanted to end in style. Overall, not a great time: 6:25:11. But I'm super happy! I've completed a marathon! Yay!!!!

The crowd cheers...

I don't think there is such a thing as a bad time -- completing a marry is BADASS anyway you slice it.
