A little background: I've wanted to do this race for years but honestly didn't think I would be able to actually accomplish it. You see, I have never been a runner. For most of my life it was my least favorite form of exercise and I was dedicated to avoiding it at all costs. However, last summer I didn't have access to a gym and running was one of my only options to keep active. Long story short, I fell in love with the huge sense of accomplishment and competition finishing a long run (without stopping) gave me.
So, Saturday morning bright and early I lined up with 40,000 of my closest friends to check off an item on my 2015 bucket list!
Heres a little photographic peek at the experience:
