I'm a marathoner ...again!!!

Yeah, so it was not the time I had hoped for....but given my lackluster training due to injury, I am not feeling guilty about my time as I was simply all-kinds-of-happy to simply finish. Heck it was only my second marathon and it has been eight years!

Total time for Columbus marathon 4:17:56 for a 9:51 pace. Pretty tired and very sore with some seriously upset insides still. Time spent in my 3 trips to the port-o-potties did not help me at all. I was just happy to keep the near-nescessary fourth port-o-potty trip at bay until after the race. Full race details later.......

Highlight of the day really was my college pal, Liz, and my hubby who were both totally supportive and made the whole experience that much more memmorable!

Congratulations! That is a great time - don't be too hard on yourself...It has been many years since I have seen a marathon time in the 4:10-4:20 range! I know how hard you have to work to achieve that! Way to go!

So glad that you made it! I was thinking about you and hoping the knee would hold up. I'm with you on the stomach upset thing while running. If you figure out the key to stopping that let me know.

Great job!!!!!
