I ran, bitch, I ran!

Well, I didn't want to keep anyone in suspense.... I DID IT!!

Today I ran 26.2 miles in 5:20:19! I had the goal of breaking 6 hours (to get an official time and be a official finisher at Napa), but I really wanted to do it in 5:45, then my super secret goal was 5:30 and I beat all three!

I am pretty pooped. I will write a full (and verbose, I am certain) race report after my nap. Including pictures of course!

It was awesome and I can not thank you all enough for your undying support through the training and today. Thank you, thank you!!

WOW great job. Breaking 3 goals in one race. Take a nice, well-deserved break involving much alcohol, chocolate, and whatever else makes you happy. Time to reap the marathon rewards!

What's next?

Because registration opens tomorrow and I really wanted to run it last year but it was sold out by the time I even heard about it.....what do you think? I'm looking for my first full and it has to have meaning....Tiffany, firemen, SF...if only there were no hills!! Help!
