Maui Marathon - Mission Accomplished!
But for a preview, I did PR! It was a tough battle and I learned a lot along the course. I finished 14th in my age division and my time was 4:36:16 with an overall pace of 10'32". This is in comparison to my first marathon in which my time was 4:46:40 with an overall pace of 10'58". What is cool is that I am indeed comparing apples to apples as both marathons were the same course and race. And out of my three goals, I did achieve a new PR and for that I am thankful. I am also very thankful for all the supportive comments I have received here, on twitter, Daily Mile, and facebook. I do indeed read all the comments you leave me and they make me smile and some even bring happy tears to my eyes. Thank you so much!
And on a fun note, I was asked if I sing the karaoke version of The Thunder Rolls on my playlist --- not often but there have been times when I sing a little. But often I am pushing myself just hard enough that singing becomes difficult.
Daily Gratitude: I am thankful for running slowly today on day 263 of my running streak.
Daily Affirmation: I will heal, get stronger, and achieve greater dreams!
