I ran a fu*$(*% marathon. It seems like only yesterday I was setting the crazy goal… and I did it. In under 6 months.

The marathon itself was really far, and I trained really hard to even be able to run it. It was fun, terrible, gut-wrenching (literally), gratifying, and probably one of the most honest activities I’ve ever done in my life. Fighting through real pain is pretty amazing, and forces you to be amazingly honest with yourself about the capabilities of your body and mind.

Running a marathon is an opportunity that I hope everyone gets the opportunity to enjoy.

Ok, down to the fun stuff. I didn’t run it very fast, and I feel like I made the rookie mistake of starting out to fast. Below are some fun stats and images. Enjoy!
