Today I ran 26.2 miles on 3.26.2011 and ran my 2nd fastest marathon time ever with a finish time of 3:26:43!!!  I am one happy, tired, mommy of three!! 

Thank you all for all your love and support on facebook, twitter, and my blog!!  I thought of many of you today and it honestly helped push me through the hard miles.  4 months and 18 days ago my 3rd baby Colton was born.  If you had asked me then what my goal was for this race, it was to finish.  Finish I did.

Before The Finish

P.S. Boston’s up next on 4.18!!
