I've done lots of races (about 15 of them) in the past year, but today was the first day I RAN THE WHOLE FREAKIN' THING!!! My Nike+ was telling me the course was longer than 5K (5.46K according to my footpod) but still, I ran it all! I did it in 42 minutes and 48 seconds (with the extra distance, that is). It was hard and it was hot but I did it. I'm so psyched!
Now I just have to run about nine times longer and it'll be a cinch to finish this marathon.
Off to hydrate,
