Full marathon distance. 26.2 miles. 42 km. Done. Now can I die?
First time ever covered the full marathon distance. Took 4 hours and 56 minutes. Including bio breaks, water breaks, changing of shirts breaks, catching my breath breaks and simple wondering why the heck am I doing this to myself breaks, the whole run took 5 hours and 35 minutes.
Got caught in sharp rains at the 24th mile. I was glad. It kept me distracted just when I was starting to get tired and made the finishing of the run more fun as I jumped from puddle to puddle.
Now I am ready for my first formal Marathon race. Okay, then. My first formal Marathon race – see you in Marathon!!
