i survived the cleveland marathon! in fact, i did a bit better than i thought i would, finishing in 4 hours, 2 minutes, and staying consistent in pace pretty much the whole way. the last 3 miles or so were (very) painful, and i am as sore as all-get-out, but it was worth it. race details will be in my other blog, so if you want to know more . . .
the hardest part about the trip was driving 9 hours to and from cleveland both the day before and the day of. i don't recommend doing that. but we made it.
now i just have to re-teach my body how to walk down steps . . .
