I did it!

I can't believe that I actually did it! I made it and I wasn't even the last one! Close to the last one, but not last! But I really didn't even care if I was last. I just wanted to finish. And I DID IT!

I am grateful for Courtney. I couldn't and would never have done it if it wasn't for her.

I ran my first marathon. It was the smallest one. A 5K.....if you are like me and have no idea how far that is, it is 3 miles. I didn't do any training. It was just a last minute decision and I am not a runner. In fact there was a lot of walking involved or else I would have never made it to the end. And that was my only goal......to finish.

And I DID IT. WE DID IT, Courtney and I! And we are SO proud of ourselves! It is funny how giddy we were and how good we felt about ourselves after the run. And we stunk if you go by where we placed (147th out of like 185 runners), but who cares, right?!

We did it, we finished. That's what matters.

Fantastic, your taking after your Aunt Joy. At least you didn't finished last. Which was where I would have finished and would probably take me twice as long as the next to last.

Next time do some training first so you don't end up in the hospital or having to have knee surgery. Get in excellent shape first and increasing your endurance.
