Time To Get A New Goal!

First Marathon Complete!!!

Chip Time: 5:07:18
It was a long, long run…
Anticipation; surreal calm; go with the flow; unplanned sighting of a friend; amazed by the Elites; hills, hills and more hills; headwind; river otter crossing; residential hilly hell; oh, the Elites are on their way back already? It’s only 1:43:00; great spectators; turnaround (finally); sore hips; queasy, why can’t I just throw up and get it over with?; residential hilly hell redux; let’s start walking; headwind again?; there’s no longer a crowd so take my picture!; run a couple, walk a few, repeat; 5km left; 4km left; 3km left; dancing seniors; 2km left; sore knee; 1 mile left; 1km left; just RUN!; really, RUN!; finish arch; run through; arms up and clapping; huge smile; medal; I’m done!; find Colin; CELEBRATE!!!
Report to come over the next few days.
When can I do it again? I need a better PR.
