I finally ran my very first full marathon. Today, I am achy, tired, and sore. However, VERY, VERY proud! I made it a personal goal in the beginning of 2007 to complete a full marathon. In the past I have completed half marathons. (Palm Beach 2004, 2005, & 2006) However, this past Sunday I felt a higher level of personal satisfaction.
I have been asked several times how the race went and how I felt. I can truly say that finishing a marathon was a mental challenge as well as a physical challenge. I had different feelings at different stages of the race. So, I decided to “Blog” it below and I hope this might inspire someone to complete their own dream.
This is how my first full marathon went:
