I am now a Marathoner

It is done. Who knew it was so difficult? Oh, the rest of you did? Well, apparently, I didn't fully appreciate how difficult.

But I did it. It is done. I am really too tired to write. I took a shower, ordered a room service burger (which I could only eat a 1/4 of - what the heck???) and now I need to put these ice packs on my back and lay on the bed and watch some football.

Thanks for all of your support through this last year of training.

Thanks be to God.

One of those things that can never be taken. What gifts sobriety gives, eh?

Congrats, my dear.
But I still maintain that I'd rather just go by automobile.

Congratulations! You set a goal and achieved it! I hope that once you rest your body and mind that you will realize what a wonderful thing you accomplished. Way to go!

Very well done. I walked faster today, because of you Nary C. Simply because of you. (I'd started walking really slow, you see)
