Marathon

One of my life's goals was to say that I ran a marathon. I didn't want to run it, I just wanted to say that I have. Figuring I wasn't getting any younger, I trained for the Columbia City, Indiana Veteran's Day Marathon for the past couple of months. Race day was warmer than I wanted and there were a bunch of hills on the route - including right before mile 26. But somehow I managed to finish. Right before mile 25 my right calf cramped up so I had to do a goofy looking running/hopping gait, but it worked. As I saw the finish line I wanted to sprint, but then my calf seized up so I hobbled to the end. A woman running close to me came to make sure I was ok. My goal was to get under five hours, I got five and a half. But I can cross it off my to do list.

MASSIVE CONGRATS! I plan on running a marathon soon too. Well done! I just randomly came across your blog, but I had to pay my respects to a marathoner.

Have a good one!

I was surfing blogs and came across your achievement. Well done for running and double well done for finishing.
Have you ever considered the comrades marathon in South Africa? One of the most gruelling.
