In May of 2009 I ran my very first marathon! It was the highlight of months and months of hard training and weight loss. At the time, I intended for Fargo to be first and more than likely last marathon I was ever going to run. Boy was I wrong! This race did something to me. It made me realize how much I truely enjoy running and to top it off I didn’t run this race very well and I was determined to run faster. So this race set the stage for what was to become a new journey for me and for my family.
Marathon Finishing Time: 4:35:51 (10:31 per mile pace)
