After crossing the finish line Ben and I walked around trying to find Madi and Steve. When Steve saw us he snapped a picture. I just wanted a fresh water, to walk slow and to stretch my legs! Phew!
I may want to try another one of these things some day...but NEVER again in Nashville that's for sure. The hills were unreal! Rumor has it, it's one of the most hilliest marathons out there. The expected temps were 56 at the start and 65 at the finish. Yesterday at my finish it was 87 degrees! Plus there was some wind. Between my friend Susy and Jill who did the full marathon they agree about those hills and heat. And then while eating breakfast at our hotel this morning the dinning room full of runners and everyone was talking about how rough this race was. So if I ever do it again it will be somewhere flat...but I am still thrilled over my experience yesterday, great memories and stories.
