I AM A MARATHON RUNNER!!!!!

I still can hardly believe that I AM A MARATHON RUNNER!!! It was truly one of the best experiences of my life. I have so many details to share but I am just too exhausted at the moment to share them. I will as I start to feel better.

I will say that I did better than I thought I would and although I was ready to be done after 26.2 miles the adrenaline kept me going and I FINISHED STRONG! It was a very empowering.

WOW!!! This whole journey was just AWESOME and I proved to myself that I can push my limits and go for things that I think are out of my reach.

Gosh, it was just so GREAT!!! I cannot get the smile off my face. At least my face isn't sore so I can still smile. As for the rest of my body especially my hips, shins and feet are moving really really slow.

I will share more details later. As for now this marathon mom has got to get some rest.
