You are so sweet to ask! I wish you were coming to Utah. AAAAHHHHH I did it! It was awesome and one of the hardest things I ever did. I was blessed with wonderful running buddies and we just helped each other out. It was beautiful where we ran and that helped so much. Plus, laughing at whatever we found funny. I would see people cramping up or throwing up and think "AAAhh negative energy block it out." I did a 4:11 which isn't really fast but I stayed steady. There was a lot more downhill than I thought there would be so my quads are giving me hell for abusing them but today I am feeling much better. When I saw my kids and husband they had flowers for me and I just started to cry. It was emotional just because I did what I set out to do. I can cross it off my bucket list but I seriously know this sounds stupid but I think I could do another one. Em was so sad not to be there so I know I will do one with her when she gets back here. I just keep smiling thinking about it. I'm such a dork! GIRL POWER!

I am so proud of you! That's a really great pace for your first full! I really want to do one...I just need to get the motivation to start the training for it. Now that it's 110 degrees here, it's hard because I have to run on the treadmill and I hate that. I really really want to do the PF Changs Rock n Roll Marathon in San Diego next May. I think that would be a beautiful run and would be a huge accomplishment. I got emotional when I finished my first half marathon, so I understand how you would feel after a full. You are an inspiration to me, so thank you for sharing! Congrats!! And...go get a massage, you def deserve one! :o)

Go Kim that is awesome. Hey Em I'm with you on that maybe when I am sixty she can push me in a wheel chair. That is the only way I would do it.

Great Job Kim! I can honestly say, I have no desire to do one. a 1/2 marathon is all I could ever do. What can I say I am a whimp! You ROCK! Can't wait to see you in JUNE.
