Sorry to not have posted sooner, I was holding out for some pictures to post along with my words! And here they are, actual proof that I completed 26.2 miles of running/walking. It was amazing, exhilirating, extremely emotional and definitely the hardest thing I've ever done in my whole entire life. My goal was simply to finish but if we're getting particular, my finishing time was 5:55:06. I don't quite have the words yet to describe it all, I'm still recovering and trying to get to a point where I'm not tired all the time! Maybe after a weekend of rest and celebrating my 30th birthday...with a life goal CHECKED OFF!!!
(These pics were all taken by the official marathon photographer a mile out from the finish and at the finish)
