Rock and Roll Seattle, Anyone...Anyone!

Where do you even start this?  I can't write much but if you are like me you want something.  Am I right? 

What you can know is that I finished.  I have pictures posted on facebook and if you aren't already my FB friend...well then it's time because you want to see the pictures, right?  Right! 



The race went GREAT for the most part.  I dealt with my usual stomach issues/cramps earlier than usual, which made it a little more difficult the last half, but I DID it.  My goal was to come in under 5 hours. My final time was 5:01:44, but I did run 26.61. If you would all refer to me as an "ULTRA MARATHONER" now...I would sure appreciate it. Ok, so that probably isn't fair but it's a great feeling to say MARATHONER! 



Can't wait to tell you more about it. I have a ton of picture.  It was a wonderful day of meeting so many of you, which honestly was a MAJOR highlight.  Seeing my friends and family support me all over the course was amazing and I even got to run with my dad and step-mom...pretty cool day.  I can't believe I am done with my first marathon.  I am ready to have my life back and relax for a week.  I am already signed up for 2 races so I will be training for those.  Time to try and sleep, it's been a long day.

CONGRATS to everyone who ran in the RocknRoll Today...it was a GREAT day!  (Going to post a few pictures, but no links or names...I am sleepy, but I love pictures in my posts)

Jill! I've never seen somebody so happy to be running 26 miles! CONGRATULATIONS! You looked wonderful at the end and it was so nice to meet you. I'm hoping to convince you all to come out for the flying pig in Cincinnati.. Bloggie meet-up east coast style.

Again, congrats! You were awesome.
