We had a goal to qualify for Boston, but after I realized that wasn't going to happen, I set a new goal to beat my first time. Well after I realized that wasn't going to happen either, I figured I should aim to get below 4 hours. So I guess it took me 3 tries to finish. I think my time was 3 hr 56 min. Good enough-I'll take it. And as I said before "I will never run another marathon again"(well unless I have any more babies I guess:)
I think this was the only time I had a smile on my face...and that was because I finally saw my hubby and baby at mile 21---way too long. He said he tried so many times to see us, but there were so many people and cars that he couldn't get anywhere! I was so bummed that I only saw him once--I think I was just really spoiled with my first Marathon in Logan where I saw him at every station. He is so nice to support me all the time, I'm sure that wasn't too easy trying to get around with a baby the whole time. If I didn't see them when I did, I don't know if I would have finished-there's just something about seeing a familiar face after all that way-Thanks Babe!
We did it!!
Brigg was such a good sport, he just smiled the whole time and
especially loved the airplane ride.
