I did it!

I ran my first marathon on Saturday. Mesa Falls, in Ashton, Idaho. I did it 15 weeks pregnant, with an injured leg, and with a smile on my face. All 26.2 miles of it.

See that medal around my neck?
I earned it!

(And did you notice my cute baby bump?
)

More details to come, but suffice it to say I feel incredibly blessed that despite a big slow-down because of my right knee and hip, I was able to run! And I loved it! Thank you for all of your support and encouragement.

Random comment from the stranger, "way to go!" Marathons are tough, and pregnancy is tough. I admire you big time (especially because I'm having a hard time lacing up my running shoes only 11 weeks pregnant).
