26.2


I finished. I wasn't very fast. I was not last. My hip and knee gave me some problems, especially at the end but hopefully my physical therapist can help me avoid that next time. It was really hard, harder than I thought, but I still did it. And if you had asked me yesterday I would have said differently, but today I am already planning for the next one. I read somewhere that only 1 in 100,000 people will complete a marathon in their lifetime. Don't tell anyone, but I'm feeling pretty proud of my self.

Really proud of one of the 1/100,000 that I know and again - so impressive. My claim to fame of the last week was enduring a 3 hour car trip with a teething toddler. It doesn't hurt so much in my hips and knees as my ears!

i will always remain part of the 999,999 people that never complete a marathon (or start one for that matter). Congrats!

You rock! Do you remember that you said you were going to try running and you absolutely would give it until Thanksgiving? No matter what. And if you didn't like it by then, you would give it up? You crazy woman...you ran a marathon before Thanksgiving!!! You are incredible!

Congrats Angie!!! You are awesome! You should try a half next, they are not as intense and time consuming.
