Woot! Woot! I finished the Seattle Marathon yesterday afternoon. There were 11,007 participants and IT RAINED THE WHOLE TIME!
There were plenty of potties near the start.
I started at 7:15am with the walkers because I am SO slow.
The half marathon runners were on the left. Walkers stayed in the Express Lane (funny-huh)
The temps were perfect but it was WET AND WINDY!
I wanted to cry here because all the military were remembering who was lost in Iraq, and all the flags was very moving. Like, emotionally moving. Not because of the wind.They were saying motivations things, like, “We may slow down, but we never give up.” I was really trying hard not to cry. I was touched.
Devil hills on the last half. I had to HIKE up one. It sucked. If you look at the results page, everyone has Positive Splits. The hills sucked. I feel like a total badass with this hard course being my FIRST!
