Today I ran and completed my 4th marathon in a years time. I ran it with a slight case of the flu, but I finished, and very proud of that. Since increasing from half-marathons to full the education has been interesting. Not just in the physical sense, but in the mental and emotional as well. As I told my friend Courtney today, "I go out there looking for answers, and today I found a few."
Today I also realized that I was incredibly strong until mile 19-20, then I sort of fell apart. This means more 20 plus mile long runs in my future, more more ending at 17-ish. But all in all I'm pleased with myself and what I've learned along the way, as well as the wonderful runners I've met. Now I work on the marathon schedule for 2018!
