Best Part of a Marathon!

Wearing comfy shoes afterwards!

It went fine--but my feet were definitely the weak link (of course!). After only 10K or so (that's less than a quarter of the way), I felt like my shoes were wearing holes in the back of my feet (I skipped the blister stage entirely), so when Kevin stopped by at lunch time, I asked him to get some athletic tape, and stopped (wasting time! Whole seconds passing without forward progress!) in order to tape my heels. That helped for a whole, but they were painful again by the time I finished.

Also, the seat felt significantly harder (almost immediately) than it ever did before.

But I'm done! My name's on the Concept2 Marathon Challenge list, and I get a fancy downloadable certificate!

And maybe some special reward yarn/fiber on Saturday.

Congrats on finishing that marathon!!!

I met to runners a couple of weeks ago who completely inspired me to start jogging and setting goals for races. Before I even started my first week of "brisk walking" my back went on a strike and I'm still struggling with it. When I've won the battle though; I'm heading out. :)

Hooray! Sounds like you need some new yarn to wrap your sore feet in...
