My first marathon experience!!! Wow! I forgot to stop the watch until after I took the chip off my laces and greeted my family at the finish line! (oops) I also had a bathroom break that screwed my time - (Eve, you and I are gonna have a long long talk one day-why must you be so "Eve"ill????).
There was a point, by mile 6ish, that I was soon amazed at how time seemed to fly by. I took in the scenery and memories of my Uncle Sanford, who had passed of bone cancer.

There is NO WAY ONE COULD RUN THAT (afterall - i double checked - yep - no hooves!!!!
