it has been a while...

Carole cognratulations on not only three marathons in a year, but on completing your fifteenth marathon overall! Awesome!!!

It has been a while since I've been on the boards, but I wanted to tell you that I just did my first marathon 1/10/10-- I thought about you a whole lot. Your inspiration spreads farther than you probably realize! :cool:

All the best as you recover and head to Chicago (in a really long time it's months away don't think about it quite yet, lol!). xoxo!

Carole, I feel great. I used the handicapped stall in restrooms for a couple days but after my quads stopped screaming at me, all has been well. :eek: I ran yesterday (13 days after marathon) and felt like I hadn't left.

I knew going into it that I would either love the marathon or I would hate it. I wasn't sure which was preferable-- 4+ hours of hatred, or 6+ months of early weekend mornings for training runs. Turns out I adored it, so I have more work ahead! :rolleyes:

The weather had been my main concern, since I have insulin dependent diabetes and every year on the first hot day I run, my body works hard to cool me down and my blood glucose levels drop. (I can run through a lot of pain, but I can't run with low blood glucose!) So since the marathon is in Florida that was a worry for me. I wanted to do my best.

LOL it was 28 degrees. :cool: Record-breaking cold snap. No blisters, no chafing, no nothing! It was too cold! All that worry... :rolleyes:
