Today I ran my first marathon ever!

Another more mental challenge I had to tackle was my GPS (runkeeper app) was relatively different than their mile markers. I was consistently 0.30-0.50 miles ahead of their mile markers, so my app would tell me I has farther along than the course mile markers. It then hit my that my average pace wouldn't match the official clock, so I had to do a bit of mental math throughout the race. I suppose this was a much needed distraction from the muscle pain in my legs.
My mom and amazing boyfriend were their to support me and acted as my "support team." They were there to hand me full bottles of water when my fuel belt was empty. Not to mention the 250+ pictures that were taken between the two of them.
|HUGE Shout out to my AMAZING support crew!|
I would not have been able to do it without them!
|All smiles! Ready for the next one?!?!|
