The deed is done!!
The Boston Marathon has been ran!!!
Despite the HOT temperatures (65 degrees+) I managed a 6 minute BQ 😉
Did I smile at the finish??? HELLLLLLLLL YES I DID!!
I took it VERY easy today and just ran by feel. If I wanted to slow, I slowed. If I wanted to speed up, I sped up. 🙂 With a finish time of 3:29 this was my personal worst marathon finish but it was also the first time I ran without a solid goal time in mind. I sat back, relaxed and totally enjoyed the day. And the end- you bet I finished with a ginormous smile. It was a good day- a very, very good day. For the first time in a long time I felt strong, in control, at peace and happy- so so happy. And that my friends makes this quite possibly my favorite marathon thus far.
I’ll write a full recap in the coming days, but now its time for lots (and lots) of ice cream and cookies!!
Never stop running,
