Memories of My First Marathon

Waiting for the Run
It was cold, wet and windy but they warmed us up with some great guys leading some warrior chants to get us going.

The race is a beautiful course and that was the really wonderful part of the run. The Pacific Northwest is one of the most scenic areas in the world. I was all by myself on long sections of the run and it made me a little nervous because I didn't want to take a wrong turn but everything was really well marked.

 Then I finally crossed the finish line.

After I crossed the finish line and sat down to eat some watermelon I suddenly got freezing cold. That never happened to me before. I was wrapped up in a thermal blanket and my hubby got me a hot cup of coffee, within minutes I felt much better.

As I crossed the finish line they handed me the finisher medal and I actually got another medal for being first in my division, kind of cool.
