I. AM. A. MARATHONER. (First Marathon Basic Info)

10K - 1:16:27
Half - 2:39:53
30K - 3:50:05
Finish time - 5:33:10

Average Pace - 12:42

I was on target for a sub 5:30 but I walked ALL of mile 23 as I was ahead of the game and I felt like I needed the break to finish in the time that I wanted to. So I feel good that I came THAT close and even having walked all of that mile!

More details MUCH later...

Its time to relax a bit before I hit some beer with M!!!!

Way to go June/July! You did it (as we all knew you would)! I was so excited to see you with a mile to go -- you looked so happy and I just knew you'd be a marathoner within 15 minutes!

When we were looking for you, I told Jose you'd probably be wearing pink. I was right! :)

CONGRATS!

June- I made myself wait to read your blog last. I knew you finished cause I signed up to get your updates, but I was just so excited to see it in print straight from you. I am SO SO SO PROUD of you girl!! You are so awesome! You trained so hard and put in so many miles--lots of them all by yourself which impresses the hell out of me b/c I seem to have to have people to run with to get it done. What a great finish time! Way to go! I am so excited and happy for you!!!! WAY TO ROCK ON!

CaMeaux said...
