I am done! I hate to say this... but it was pretty awful for me today. I never thought I'd be saying this... but I ran my second marathon WAY slower than my first. BUT it was for an excellent cause, and I'd do it all over in a heartbeat. It's too bad that we can't pick the days that we're "on," because today I was "off." Alas, I feel like a true hero because I finished (and things started to go south before mile 8). My time was 5:59:06 -- very slow. I'll write more about it later. As for now, I am super blessed to have just finished and to have a great husband who supported me tremendously today. And our friends that came over with us did a great job, also. So here is my final thought: It was the worst race ever for the best cause ever.
Happy 7th Birthday to Elijah!!!!
