The Portland Marathon

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!!
