Yay Me!!!!

Caution - shameless brag post ahead.
And copious full stops.

For. Ty. Two. Point. Two. Kil. Om. Et. Res.
(with particular emphasis on the 'kil')

Watch this space!
Fighting words - while really petrified!

I did it!
I did it!
I. Did. It!

(Ran the Perth Marathon, if you're wondering!)

So, my spoken goal was 3hrs 45mins.
My unspoken, mental goal was 3hrs 30mins.

Oh - the sheer glamour of it all!

My time was
3hrs 27mins 4?secs
(knew I'd forget to stop my watch!)
I was the ninth female to finish - which was an unexpected bonus.
Much better than steak knives.

Neeeearly there.
Must not forget to stop watch!
I'm happy.
Very, very happy.
I'm sore.
Very, very sore.

Thank you to absolutely everyone for your support.
I promise not to mention the word 'marathon'
more than once a week here from now on!
Well, I can try.
Thank you to my gorgeous Hubby and Magoo who truly are the real champs.
(How come they can walk, then?!)

Thank you to family, friends, students and other Northern Suburbs Running Group members for coming along today and for putting up with me.

Feeling the love.
And love hurts!
Shar :-)

Oh well done Shar! What a fabulous effort. You should be shouting it from the roof tops and very proud of your achievement.
I ran 7km (in sand) today and it almost killed me. Small steps, as I always say ;o)
Hope you get a chance to rest up a bit and the blisters aren't too punishing in the days to come xo

Farking brilliant, Shar! I just read your grateful post and almost fell over my keyboard trying to get to this post to see how it went!
