Finally, after 5 years, I re-became a marathoner today! Despite all the predictions and worrying, it ended up being a perfect running day. Full race report to follow, but I made my goal by 1 minute, coming in at 4:59:00. It was amazing. Painful, but amazing. Ed was awesome support, meeting me at 3 places on the course, dropping me off, and heading over to the finish line to cheer me in (I'm the one in blue and purple). Warning, Ed's a little loud in the video :)

What a great husband!

(waiting to ride BART back to the car)

I'll fill you in on all the details soon. Thanks for the support!

Yay! Congratulations, as if there was any doubt that you'd do well (then again, I wasn't the one running 26.2 miles). But I'm glad it was a good experience and look forward to your report :-).

Woohoo! Addy, I am so happy to hear this. Congratulations on re-becoming a marathoner! Way to go, and I can't wait to read the report. Hope you are recovering well and savoring the experience! :)
