LA Marathon - CHECK!

A little late, but there's no way in hell I wasn't going to post about this.

I DID IT! I cannot believe it but I did it! I finished the Los Angeles Marathon! I finished in 5:22:44!!

I couldn't have asked for a better experience and I wouldn't have done anything different. To my girls who ran it with me, congratulations ladies! I will always always hold these memories in my heart and will be forever grateful to you for inspiring me to go the distance.

Thank you to all the husbands, including Mr10yt who is usually very anti everything. To our families and friends that came out, and to our supportive nestie mofos. It was all I could do to keep from crying my ass off as I crossed the 26 mile banner and see and hear you all shouting me to the finish line.

Hopefully, my little drop in the bucket effort to find a cure for Leukemia and Lymphoma won't be in vain.
