I DID IT!!! (Sunday Post)

I DID IT!
I did it!
.
The Virginia Beach Rock and Roll Half Marathon is now on my been there, done that list.
.
It was amazing. I feel so great!
Round about the 7 mile mark I got a flood of endorphins that was incredible. (And it almost lasted till the end).
While I was running I kept thinking of possible titles for this post. Some of which came from t-shirts other people were wearing. Here are some of them:
-Who needs toenails anyway?
-I know I run like a girl, try to keep up
-In my dreams I'm kenyan
-This seemed like a good idea 2 hours ago
-I ROCK!
.
I almost cried when I crossed the finish line. I made myself stop because I couldn't breathe.
You should be able to see on my nike+ sidebar that my most recent workout was 14+ miles, (I kept walking after the race).
And you can check my times at the official marathon site. Or >>here<<, by entering my bib number, which is 20758.
I will follow this post with more posts displaying pics of (hopefully) me running, my awesome medal (that I'm not taking off all day), and of my fabulous blister on the arch of my right foot that is bigger than any blister has any right to be.
Thanks for the love, encouragement, and support.
I can't believe I did it.
.
Being that this is also my Sunday Post I will include the 2 scriptures that kept me going:
-Philippians 4;13:
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
-Isaiah 40:31:
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint.
.
I did it!

Della
Great!
How is the body doing today, Monday?
That blister - did it pop during the run? If you drain it, work hard at keeping it clean.
My guess is that you are going to take a day off then keep running for you.
Good luck.
