Fair warning: this is probably going to end up getting crazy long and out of control and weirdly emotional for a race recap, because on Sunday, October 13, I became a marathoner. I RAN A MARATHON!!! THIS IS SUCH A WILD SENTENCE THAT I KIND OF NEVER THOUGHT I’D BE ABLE TO STATE AS FACT. … Continue reading I AM A MARATHONER
Forgive the all-caps, I'm just still very excited about this. Since I started running half marathons in 2013, my most consistent goal has been to finish one in under 2 hours. AND I FINALLY DID IT!
