MILES. Yes, you read that right- 13.1 miles. That is how far I ran today. Well, not just me, 6 of my good friends and a few thousand other people in Salt Lake. It may not seem like that big of an accomplishment for the marathon runners out there, but that was a first for me. It was huge accomplishment in my life. I'm so happy it's over, but I'm equally happy that we did it. There were definitely moments along the way that I wasn't sure how I was going to finish. I had to give myself some serious pep-talks and pray really hard at some points. But we all did it, and we did it well. The feeling of crossing the finish line was something wonderful and worth feeling. I will however say, that the pain I have felt since about 30 minutes after I was done, and that I am still feeling right now - extreme exhaustion, aches, and pains all over- is not one bit pleasant. But emotionally, I feel good. Thank you to my dear friends that did this with me. Without you, I would have never done it.
7:00 am start from Olympic Stadium
