After Completing the Marathon

I am not ashamed to admit that I cried when I crossed the finish line at today's NYC marathon (26.2 miles). This was my first full marathon and it was a very humbling, terrifying, exciting, grueling and incredibly gratifying experience -- and probably one of my most challenging endeavors!!!! It was an amazing adventure and I am so grateful to have experienced it all -- the good, the bad and the ugly. This 52 year old body is sore but my soul soars!!!

Congratulations to all the finishers! 

Just remember. You can do ANYTHING you set your mind to, but it takes action, perseverance and facing your fears. -- Gillian Anderson

Goodnight friends. Sweet dreams.
