Hey there. Happy Monday. I wanted to just let you all know I finished the 2015 NYC Marathon and I’ll have a full recap up later this week. This one was challenging. But hey, marathons shouldn’t be easy right? So many fun things to tell you about too. I can’t wait to tell you more than you could possibly ever want or need to know about my experience. =)

the struggle was real

I met Goal C which was to finish before my slowest marathon time of 5:28 and I did it barely by coming in at 5:23:55. And honestly that’s only because Lisa found me and we ran the last 3 miles together. Otherwise I’m fairly certain I would have walked those entire 3 miles.

Happy finishers

But a finish is a finish and I’m taking my medal to bed with me every night this week. #kiddingnotkidding

I earned this one for not giving up when clearly my mind and my body were not on board with that notion

On my bedside table! I earned this one for not giving up when clearly my mind and my body were not on board with that notion

Thanks for all the well wishes. I’ll have that recap up later this week.
