I did it. I ran 26.2 miles all over the streets of Denver!
The Denver Rock n’ Roll Marathon was my first. It won’t be my last. I’ve heard their are two types of marathoners: Those that cross the finish line and say this is my last only to change their minds a few hours later or their is the runner that crosses the finish line and says I can’t wait to beat my time – I was somewhere in between.
Finishing a marathon is impressive. My status in the running community skyrocketed – I am now a marathoner! That brings tears to my eyes every time I think about it. Crossing that finish line with Melissa will be something neither of us will ever forget – Thanks to Tiffany we have the photo to help us. A time of 5:42:09 may be nothing to boast about. That doesn’t change the fact I’m a marathoner!
