My first marathon

Well, I finally did it. I finished my 1st marathon.

It took me about 6 hours and 18 minutes and it was grueling.


I know at about 4 hours I hit a wall and was ready to throw in the towel but I stayed the course. I took deep breathes and slowly focused on the goals.

Don’t look at the end I said to myself – look at it as a bunch of short challenges. One step at a time.

Take the next step and then do the next one.

And then suddenly, I finished!!!

I am exhausted and worn out but it was all worth it.

A fantastic feeling to make it to the finish.


ooopppsss, I just re-read this post and realized the 1st line is suppose to say I finished my 1st marathon Application. I have no idea how people do the actual marathon – the application wiped me out.
