QUICK CHECK-IN...

...to let Blogland know I'm back from the marathon, that I finished it, that my feet are not any worse (maybe actually better), that I'm all in one piece (as much as I ever was), that it was a whole lot of fun, and that I thank everyone for their good wishes and foot tips!

I'll write a report soon and post pictures. Not tonight. It's 10p.m. and I've been awake since 3a.m., ran 5:20 (took a lot of pictures), then drove home 5:40, unpacked, finally showered, have been regrouping and checking email (an amazing amount in one day), and I am about to go to bed now. It's been a looooong day. I kept thinking about Julie running for 24 hours to the tune of 116.8 miles, and feeling puny because I was looking forward to the end of my 26.2....

Later, folks.... and thank you!

Uh oh, what is this - negatively comparing yourself with others and minimizing your own accomplishment!??? None of that, now!

YOU ROCKED! Well done on yet another marathon finish - can't wait to hear all about it!!
