Boston Marathon day. Don't have any race photos yet, but when I do, get ready for some gnarly ones. Instead, here is a post race stroll through Boston Commons #nocolonstillstrollin
Today was rough to say the least. Felt amazing through 16 miles, and then everything fell apart. Some mixture of dehydration from the heat and over-estimating my fitness led me to run smack into the 'wall' that I heard so much about coming into the weekend.
The last 6 miles were a gruesome combination of cramping and stumbling... but there was nothing that was going to stop me from crossing that line.
As you can see, I'm not too broken up about my performance. In fact, I'm really proud of my race, despite the finish time being less than I'd hoped. (That being said I won't be trying another one anytime soon..ouch)
Thank you so much to everyone who has been following along and supporting me throughout this whole experience; It means the world to me.
