I’m Goofy….I Did It!

 

Well friends, I had some people tell me I wouldn’t finish, and I myself was nervous after the half. But I proved to myself I AM stronger than I think, and I ran 39.3 miles in two days!!! Not only that, But I PRed in the full, running right at 5:58 with gas still left in the tank…and after taking a ton of character photos. I really surprised myself. I had fun, but I am also so glad it’s over. I hurt!

I can’t WAIT to tell you all about this exciting and memorable weekend. It will forever be one of my favorites of all time. I am so proud of Bobby and of myself. We fought hard, through the 80 degree heat and humidity, and we got it done. Words can’t express how thankful I am for all the thoughts, prayers, tweets, Facebook messages, etc. Each one kept me going, I loved seeing them in the middle of the races. You guys rock! I will be back Wednesday night, so my recaps won’t come until later, but they WILL come, I promise you. I am off to enjoy my accomplishment and my last couple days in Disney, wearing my medals proudly.

QOTD: What is something you have done that you weren’t sure you could do?
