Best mo - really feeling, seeing and hearing what it means to run your first marathon
Worst mo - knowing that stopping at 24 miles was just not an option
Surprise - the sheer guts and determination of such a varied group of people
My goal - to complete my first marathon in less than 5 hours - I did it in
4:49 and ran all the way!
Differently - maybe try to smile a few more times after mile 21!
Made a difference - running with the Runners World pacers for 11 min mile -
everyone in that pack helped keep me going but most of all enjoy the
experience even more - we stuck it out 'til the end!
Celebrate - with my feet up!! Most of all you can't knock the smile off my
face today - I've spent the whole day telling people what a fab time I had
(despite the fact that walking is very 'bambi like' today!
My nickname is TheChef - I really love to cook!!!! Something different to
pasta for a while though :-))
The Smiling First Timer!!!!!
