I did it! I did it!!!!

Just a quick update to let you all know that I did it, I am officailly a Marathoner!!!! It was the most amazing, life changing experience of my life!
I finished in 5:16! That was my "good goal", I missed my "dream goal" (sub 5), guess that gives me something to work for!
Thank you to all of you for everything, you have made this even more of an amazing journey!
I will post a full report tomorrow evening with pictures and videos!

WHOOOO HOOO CONGRATS GIRL!!!! I was sending you good vibes all day long!

P.S. You missed nothing at homecoming...it was pouring rain and miserable and cold and ponchos and rain gear did nothing to keep us dry.

Glad you had better weather on Sunday though!
