Miles 11-14 were so sweet! I felt like I was flying and had no pain! I was on cloud 9! Miles 14-20, Jenny took off. I had to dig deep and finish strong. I found my inner warrior, but the roads were really uneven and not paved...that caused a few issues for my feet/knees. I thanked every cop at each intersection...that pumped me up every 1/2 mile!
In the end, I was able to keep going and not stop to walk. Time was 3:32/10:37 pace. Jenny's pace was a 10:20 pace...thats her goal and I need to work on catching up to her so I dont have to run any of the marathon alone (unless its the very end!) It was definitely a huge milestone and I am very proud of myself! Jenny came in 9th and I came in 10th out of our age division! Rock it!
