Our Cleveland 2012 Marathon Finish Photo...

A lot of people probably accomplish their first 13.1 miles, but I got to do mine with my BFF since my pre-teens. I can't express what an amazing feeling this was. We've been through everything together, and this is just another stepping stone!! It meant so much to me!


We got a ton of decent pictures crossing the finish, but this most depicts how happy I was that it was over!

thank you! some of the photos were of me smiling, most of them were me in pain, and cursing. But the most important moment, was this finish!

DUDE. This is awesome. You MacGuyvere'd the crap out of that 13.1 miles!

Christy said...

This is awesome! I don't think I could ever get motivated enough to run more than a 5K, but I totally admire people who run half and full marathons! What a great accomplishment.

missy:
don't count yourself out. I merely had daily 5 mile runs under my belt and a lot of determination!!

Jas:
I so did!! thank you thank you!!

Christy:
I was stuck on 5k for a while, and I wanted a challenge....I sure got it! So many people didn't make it due to the heat/injury so I feel even better about making it thru!

i did the akron relay last year, at my bff's urging, and she told me i'd be hooked. I was, I have been doing 5k's though. This was my first long distance, and I have 4-5 more 5k's this year and hopefully i do the towpath half in october! It is so fun!

Rachel:
heck yea, you can do whatever you set your mind to, I am a firm believer now!
