Run First Marathon: Check
Mission: Run first marathon, Freedom's Run.
This will be the very brief overview with more details than anyone would ever want to know coming in the next couple of days.
It was amazing.
It was hard. Really hard. Really, really hard. The course description of "challenging" is 100% accurate.
Nothing could have prepared me for the feeling of accomplishment realized as the finish lined approached. Words can't describe it.
It took me longer than I planned on and I struggled in the last 6 miles, but I couldn't care less how long it took. It was still a wonderful experience.
Oh, and the title? Yes, it says complete FIRST marathon. I fully anticipate another sometime in my future.
