76:05:39:10

I ran my marathon in 76:05:39:10...  that's 76 Days 5 hours and 30 minutes and 10 seconds.  

Well, I have 364 days to train for my next marathon, which I hope to finish in under 5 hours.  Yes, it's true.  I signed up for my 1st real marathon.  I still plan on running Half Marathons between now and then, to get some racing milage under my belt and also to make myself a more complete runner.

Sean's not happy about it.  I did broach the subject, as promised, right after I "gave him permission" to buy a $900 TV.  I thought it was a good tactic.  Apparently not.  I've been gently leading him to the idea of the full marathon for a few months now, but he's still reeling from the broken foot incident.

G - Let's get the hubby to talk to J. I mean I ran the last marathon on a bum foot and he's ok with me doing it again (although, I think secretly he thinks I'm crazy). Either way, I think J can talk some sense into him, or at least help him realize that there is no winning this battle, so he might as well give up! - T

Congratulations! That's awesome and you are going to have such a sense of accomplishment from doing it.

Plus I guess it's official - you're an addict!
