Digesting this thing called a Marathon

I don’t know where to begin. I’m not even sure what to say. I’m still digesting my marathon. Until I wrap my head around it, here are a few photos and the only thoughts I’m having right now.

While out on the course, I had the hardest time believing it was actually race day.

For a girl who has always done things on her own and has lived life pretty independently (sometimes too independently), I realized how comforting support can be along the way.

Smiling and running feels good.

Coughing and running does not feel good.

I learned more about myself and running 26.2 miles than I expected. I am so ready to apply those lessons.

I want more! so much more! I’m addicted.

Did I mention the wind?

Official finish time – 4:40:21

I promise to try to find words for this race before the week slips away from me! Back to running tomorrow. Cherry Blossom 10 miler, I have big plans for you!

  1. Congratulations!! I am running my first half in June and I cannot wait to look back and say “wow I cannot believe I did that!”

  2. Running tomorrow! Are you crazy? I am hoping my legs will be able to walk through whole foods. I’m thinking yoga on Thursday and a run on Friday. Great job on the race!!
