Wes and I ran our first Marathon in Portland on October 4th. It was a great 1st time marathon to run there were aide stations every couple miles and there was so much support from spectators! I was really nervous for it because I only made it up to 16 miles in my training and I was supposed to get up to 20 miles. It went pretty well though, I was able to jog all 26.2 miles, I knew if I started to walk I wouldn't be able to start running again! My time was 4 hrs and 13 minutes, which was better than I thought I would do. I was pretty sore for the next couple days, but I think I would do it again. I think the training sucked more than the actual marathon! If there is a next time I really need a training partner!
Both these pictures were taken in the middle of mile 25 we were pretty excited to be done!!
This is my way of journaling because i've never been good at writing things down! Don't worry I don't get too personal! I'm married to Wesley who is currently in school (and obsessed with fishing) and I'm an RN on the labor and delivery floor in Spokane WA. We had a new addition to our little family on 5/18/11 Oliver Perez and we love him more than anything in the world!!!
