I am not going to try and BS anyone, that was DIFFICULT. It has been two days and I am still taking stairs one step at a time.
Here are the stats for the day:
Total Number of Marathon Participants: 24,982
Overall Finishing Place: 4004
Division (Males 40-44): 423/1691
Gel Packets Eaten: 8
Pieces of Candy from Strangers: 5
Toenails Lost: 2
Chafing Spots: 0 (Thank you Body Glide)
For my first marathon, I am really happy. When people started dropping, literally falling over and hitting the ground, between miles 22 and 23 I started thinking about how nice it would be to walk for awhile I was able to push on through.
So my first challenge has been accomplished! Now it is time to really start focusing on the Lake Placid Ironman. I am comfortable with the training part, because I am 100% in control of that. I am going to need your help to raise the money for the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation. So please click the link below and give whatever you can. Every donation is tax deductible and it is helping me get one step closer to my goal.
