I can't believe that I have completed a FULL Marathon. If you would have asked me a year ago if I would run a marathon I would have said NO WAY, ask my mom she would tell you. Marathons have never interested me because who is kidding who 26.2 is a long way to go on foot. My mom, dad and a lot of my family run so they were always pushing me to do one.  I wanted to make the decision on my own and WANT to do one. At the end of last summer I started thinking well maybe I can do it and then my good friend Brittany asked me if  we could do one together and at that moment I just blurted out YES. We signed up in November and started training in January a 18 week program that we stuck to pretty closley. It was fun to run our long distance on the weekend together and text each other our accomplish of miles during the week. She definitely kept me motivate. It was such a good experience to share with Brittany and both accomplish such an emotional goal. We both decided to dedicate our marathon to our cute kids Lucas and Ella because we both wanted a goal after we had a baby and get back into shape. Truly it was an amazing experience!
