Quick Maine Marathon Recap

I Just Finished My 11th Marathon!

I had so much fun running this marathon! According to my husband, I looked very happy when I crossed the finish line. It was probably the best moment of the race!

I think my finish time was 4:02:44. (The marathon page says they’re working on corrections, whatever that means.) I started easier than usual and had more energy late in the race than I usually do.

There was constant rain, lots of hills, stopping for a fire truck and running in a trash bag for 3 miles! 

My wifi is terrible at this hotel so I'll post details later.

Thank you for all of your encouraging comments and prayers! It means so much to know that people are rooting for me. : )
