My 1st Marathon (Teaser)

I am exhausted but overjoyed!  It's our last two days here in Vegas so please let me first give you a teaser of my marathon experience yesterday.

The Good News -  I finished it! Yey! With no knee pain! I prayed and requested that I just finish by the cut-off time (5 hours and 30 mins). But God had a better plan. According to my Garmin I ran 42.43KM in 5 hrs, 19 mins., and 8 secs. Official time says I finished 5:19:01. Less two seconds and it would've been 5:18. Hehe!  But I'm happy with my time. =)

The Bad News - There was actually someone who wore more pink than I did. Hmph!!! Hahahaha! :p

Race recap and more photos to follow.  That's it for now.  Need to enjoy Vegas. =)

  20. I think I passed you between mile 24 and mile 25. I thought it was you, but I wasn't 100% sure, and I didn't want to accost an unsuspecting runner so close to the finish line.

    GREAT JOB!

  37. YAY FOR YOU!!!!! I hate it we weren't able to connect at the expo. If it had just been us I would have hung around after I got your text, but I had my husband and another couple with us, and I had already kept them there long enough that I felt guilty about it. lol I looked for you at the race and even asked a couple of hot little numbers on the course, "Are you Julie?" lol I wish I'd seen the post about your outfit beforehand! I could have saved myself some strange looks!
