I am...

a marathoner.

Big thank you to everyone who waited (seemingly forever!) for me at the finish line; you made it all worthwhile. And thank you to all of you for all of your kind words and support.

Congratulations to my fellow runners. Everyone should be so proud. It's an honour to run among you.

I'll be back ASAP with alllll the details and more pics, but for now I leave you with this.

These were taken in the finishing chute. At least I'm smiling. :)





4:44:40 (4:42:04)

Huge thank you to Mel for these amazing pics, and for being there!

I forgot to answer the WB question - yes, I used to post there and thought that you did, but I didn't post as often, so I didn't want to seem like a stauker or anything LOL. I ran my first full before my wedding.

Good for you! (Just read your comment on yumke's blog.). We must have run together a lot as we basically had the same time! The sun and visuals the last chunk were pretty gruesome.
