First Marathon Win, Recap Teaser

There are a lot of reasons I like this marathon, including that the final stretch of the course is just very cool. You run across a bridge, over a beautiful lake, and then immediate cross the finish line. It makes every finisher feel like they are in first place because each and every spectator is giving you their undivided attention. It’s possible there were fewer than 75 people in the finishing area at the end of the bridge, but it might as well  be a thousand with how special they make you feel.

That's the home stretch behind me!

A race recap for Sunday’s marathon will probably take me until the weekend. There were so many wonderful elements and my partner-in-running-infamy and I both reached several new milestones in our marathon running.

The most recent being this “Marathon Guide” siting for me and my BQ running buddy!

Now you know what my pre-sunrise activities are. Perhaps I could have cropped this screen-shot.

More to come, if you haven’t had enough via other social media portals here’s yet another picture from Sunday:

    • Thanks, trust me, it’ll be very heavy on ego. None of this mile-by-mile and then a subtle “I done good” in the end…I’ve never been less humble. Because, shoot, when do you even get the opportunity for this to happen, really didn’t know I ever REALLY would.

  11. So happy for you! I can’t wait to read the full recap. Congrats again!
