success!

seemed like a lot longer than that – but it flew by with the help of my cheerleaders:

training partner:

pig tails:

and salt pills :).

thinking about doing another one in the fall – who’s with me?

    If I wouldn’t have been betting on horse races I would have been betting thousands of dollars on you beating 2:30, and I would have won, and then shared with you my earnings. It would have been much more satisfactory, especially if I were able to communicate with my subject to pump them up and give them praise. Though I suppose you could still do that with a horse, but it’s not as fulfilling. Happy recovery!

      this comment made me laugh and i had to read it five times to understand it, but what else is new?? thanks friend!! it was fun!! wanna run one with me in the fall?

    I was wondering today why I didn’t even run this one and I didn’t come up with anything. Let’s! It depends on where we are I suppose, but it could almost become an annual thing attached to a mini vacay… we could cover all of the US! Now I’m brainstorming… that’s dangerous. But oh so exciting…

    Abby! What an amazing time!!! :) You must be so happy! I had such a blast and definitely plan to run the race again next year. My time was 2:31:07 – not toooo bad for a first timer!

    I also really want to run the all women’s marathon in September…… Miiiiight be addicted.

    re-reading my comment, i mean to say 2:05:30.

    that’s way more of a risky bet, but one i would indeed win. please, you could have walked the thing in 2:30.

    my official last post.
