I finished the Goofy Challenge!!
Sorry to fall off the face of the blogging world but post-marathon I relaxed, ate, slept, and then headed out to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure yesterday for a very full day of Harry Potter World and roller coasters. Obviously, we had to soak up one last day of that Florida sun :).
I finished the marathon a lot slower than I thought that I would (I think the first words out of my mouth after I finished were “well that was hard”) but I felt pretty strong and had a huge smile on my face for most of the race. As difficult as it was, I had a blast and enjoyed the course, the characters, and pretty much everything about the race. In case you’re curious, my marathon time was 3:51:42 which is a personal worst by over 10 minutes but given the circumstances, I was pretty thrilled.
Now that I’m back in Chicago, I pinky promise that both the half marathon and full marathon recaps will be up this week. See ya tomorrow!
