Ok it was my first marathon. I enjoyed it more then I thought.
Me and my friend Jeanine were in the same starting corral B which was great. She and I did all our training runs together. We started off at a good pace. Our first 6 miles were about 9:20 s. Then I had to stop to go the bathroom and told her to go ahead so the next 20 miles I was on my own. I didn t really pay attention to my splits after that. My goal was to finish. I would occasional chat it up with people running near me, when I told them it was my first marathon they were all very encouraging, telling me that I was at a good pace and that I would definitely finish in my goal time of 4:30. I took water at every water stop (the only times I walked) and did 5 GU s total. I was amazed at mile 20 how good I felt and couldn t believe that I only had 6 miles left. When I could see the finish line I gave it all the gas I had and picked up the pace a little because I was so excited with the big crowd. 4:32 was my finishing time and I was so happy! I got my Mickey Metal and my picture taken and set out to met the rest of the crew. I was walking in the big parking lot and heard Dancer calling my name. I was so happy to see all my friends. I was holding back the tears.
All in all it was a great day. I didn t feel any pain well I was running and anytime I wanted to stop other then the water stops I kept telling myself that if I stopped, it would only take me longer to finish and I wouldn t walk. My quads where tight after but feel pretty good today. My lower back had a bruised feeling to it but it s pretty much gone now.
