I've been training for a marathon the past few months. This Saturday, I ran the Kentucky Derby Festival Marathon. It was a blast! It was my first marathon, and I came in at 4:26:27, beating my goal of 4 1/2 hours by a few minutes!!!
I was pretty sore Sunday and yesterday, but I barely feel anything now. I'm surprised. I totally expected to be laid up for a few days.
This is my friend, Shera, and me (on the right) at the finish line sporting our medals. Shera's from the big K-Y.
And here I am later that night at "Night at the Races" at the local church. This was hilarious - a bunch of grown people riding wooden horses and betting on them. Too funny. I won the 4th race. Go me!!
