…if someone’s run a marathon?
Don’t worry–they’ll tell you!
Last Sunday, I ran the TCS New York City Marathon!
I got tired around mile 16 after going over the third bridge (there are five), and started walking through the water stations at mile 18. Since I started out faster than I should have, I was still able to finish in 4:28:08, which is under my goal time of 4:30. For my first marathon (and one of the toughest marathons at that), I’m pretty proud of myself!
My name was even printed in the New York Times–check out about a third of the way down the first column below.
I printed off a few pictures and put them in a frame from Michaels to commemorate my accomplishment.
I’m not sure if I’ll run another marathon, but like an “inspirational” quote had said: there’s a lifetime of knowing that I have. 🙂
