Aka, the best day of my life.
I ran the Cleveland marathon!
The short story: I ran one mile my at a time, with an open heart, a smile on my face (the entire time), and finished in 3:40:29. It was the most emotional finish to a race I’ve ever had and I’m so proud of me. I PR’ed by over an hour and a half and qualified for the Boston Marathon for the spring of 2011 :) :) :)
I’ll post the full race recap tomorrow!
