This Runner's Trials


Today I FINISHED a marathon!

After my DNF 13 days ago, I wasn’t sure I’d ever be able to say that again.

Garmin says I did it in 4:15:07.

I didn’t run the race as well as I hoped because I was plagued by stomach issues yet again. Though right now, I don’t care so much. I did it and that's all that matters :) I’m so happy!

Full recap to come tomorrow. Right now, I need a nap!

Thank you all SO much for your words of encouragement. It means so much to me!
