I'm back from the lovely land of Disney and I completed my first marathon successfully. My husband and I had planned on running together and actually managed to do so without killing eachother. We finished with a time of 3:55:13.

It was a great day in the low 50's. It started at 6am with some fireworks at the start. We were in corral C and the first 5 miles were pretty congested. Our pace for the first 5 miles was 9.30-10.15. After that we ran 8.35-8.54. A few of the miles near the end were 9.02 and 9.10. The course is pretty flat and goes through all the parks. I heard that the spectators at this marathon were thin but I thought there were alot of people cheering us on. My body felt great until mile 18 then my quads were tightening up and I wanted to stop and walk but my husband wouldn't let me. I'm so glad I didn't or I probably would have cramped up pretty bad. We split Gu's about every 3 miles and walked all the water stops. I am a firm believer in Gu!! I love the stuff and may start to spread it on my bagels instead of cream cheese.

It was such a great feeling finishing the marathon and sticking to all my goals. I'll definately do Disney next year. It's a great time to go on a mini vacation and throw in a marathon all in one long weekend.
