i did it!
i made it to the finish line after 26.2 miles around san francisco and although i am a bit sore today, i feel absolutely fantastic.  the nike women's marathon was quite an event.  everything was so well organized and team in training had such a huge presence that there was a sea of purple shirts all along the course.
i joined team in training a year ago and signed up to do a half marathon because my brother had just been diagnosed with hodgkin's lymphoma.  a year later, he is finished with treatment and i am proud to say that i have finished both a full and a half marathon with team in training.  the leukemia and lymphoma society does so much for cancer patients as well as funding grants for doctors who are searching for a cure.  i am so proud to be a part of the organization and a huge thank you to my friends and family who made a donation to the cause and helped me reach (and go beyond) my fundraising goal.
go team!
