Finished my First Marathon Yesterday (Read 93 times)


    Finished my first marathon yesterday. Just missed my goal time of <4:00.. Finished 4:09.25. I guess its okay, considering I only started running in August 2012 (14 months ago)  I was on pace for a 3:45 finish through 16 miles, but the last 10 miles took everything out of me. I am in total agony today, but it was well worth it.

      Amazing job! Congratulations!

        Congrats ckerr!  Pretty close to your goal, and, since it was your first, you didn't have a lot to go on.  Well-earned pain is good pain, right?

        Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

          No, you didn't "miss your goal time," you "got a PR!"  Smile


          And besides any of that, you ran 26.2 miles!!  Nothing to sniff at!


          Great job, and congratulations!
