    Hi lovely people here...I ran my Marathon on Sunday! My time was 6:07:56. Not a fantastic pace but super proud of the finish! I'm going to enjoy a couple of glasses of wine tonight, the first alcohol I've had in over a month. I'll probably start crying. All of this has been really emotional for me. I didn't drink on race day. My stomach was so torn up after finishing that my goal at that point was just finding the nearest restroom. I hope everyone is doing well. I've been checking in on y'all every day just to see...sounds like everyone is pushing on to goodness... have a wonderful evening everyone...

    Well done! You have earned that wine!
