I finished! It was my worst time ever but that didn't surprise me. I've done four different training plans and this was the lightest on the mileage. I suffered. It was humbling. But I did it.
The Marines were amazing. The course was beautiful. The weather was perfect. I had a great getaway weekend with my mom and she was at the finish line and took pictures. I missed her because it was so crowded and I was in a funk but it's cool knowing she was there.
And since it took me 5:52:52 I paid under $19/hour to run it. The winner in my division paid over $38/hour!
