My First Marathon was Great, and now Over!

It was a beautiful day, I was very nervous when the starting gun went off, but crossing the finish line 6 hours, 14 minutes, and 7 seconds later was an amazing feeling. The Marine Corps clearly knows a thing or two about running a large scale race and the location, Washington, D.C. provided a phenomenal backdrop. My favorite sign along the route was held by a spectator at mile 17 that read: "The reason your feet hurt is because you're kicking ass!" Kicking ass indeed...but time to get back to painting, and posting to my blog once again.
