Bataan Memorial Death March Marathon Finished!

I finished the 26.2 miles in an unofficial 4 hours and 19 minutes! The official results aren't up yet. I beat my last year's time by about 15 minutes, so I was happy with that. I was hoping to do 4:15, but that will just have to be part of next year's goal. At any rate, it was a blast!
I'll do a full race report in a separate post sometime this week. As always with this time of year, I'm working on getting the taxes done!

Thanks to everyone who supported me!
It is hard to believe that less than 14 years ago, I quit smoking. I used to smoke 2 packs of cigarettes a day (I smoked for 14 years!) Thank you God for a healthy body! I feel blessed to be able to run like I do.
