Ok, so I'll work on a long race report, I'm home today recouping - sssh don't tell, I'm not really that sore so I'm doing some cleaning, crafting and hanging out!
Sunday I broke my first marathon record! I ran the Portland Marathon with thousands of others and I finished in 5 hours, 39 minutes and 57 seconds! This is one hour (no really almost exactly one hour, the first was 6:39:52) faster than I finished my first marathon. Can you believe it !!! I attribute it to loosing 28 pounds, training and support of so many fellow runners!
I am elated - long report with photos to come
Thank for the pats on the back as I go through this transformation- and to Rob and 'someone he lives with' who I saw a few times during the marathon and to George K who I saw around mile 9 and gave me a great lift - wasn't it George who a year and a half ago said someday I'll be running a marathon - I gave him a crazy look and said no way - thanks for the inspiration George.
I DID IT - ANOTHER PR!!
