It’s DONE. The Marine Corps Marathon weekend has come & gone, but that high is sticking around.
The legs & I teamed up to grab that goal, run strong & see what was really possible. Limits were undoubtedly tested, and my pacer (ahem – run-buddy, friend & motivation) worked her usual magic.
The last 6.2 miles were some of the hardest I’ve run to date, but more on that when I have the capacity to write the recap. For now, I’m letting my mind & legs rest. They worked hard; they accomplished a big goal – they took almost 20 minutes off of the existing PR – and they’re basking in the glory.

A huge shout-out goes to all the Thanks & Congrats from yesterday – you guys never cease to support & amaze. Race recap to come…
*G’s timer started/stopped twice while I was walking through the Finisher’s corral – after which it occurred to me to lock the bezel + buttons.
The time above is the official result.
