Finished My First Marathon!

So I really did it. I finished my very first marathon. It wasn't easy it wasn't fun all of the time but it was rewarding everyday and every mile. Thank you again for all of your support.

The marathon: I started out strong I was running easy 12min miles for the first 14 miles, I think. And then... Something happened. My whole body started to hurt and I slowed down. I tend to get a little down on my running skills but I want to try and take the high road and be pleased with my accomplishment of finishing a marathon. I did it! I ran 26.2 miles, that is something when seven months ago I couldn't run 2 miles without stopping. So this is just the beginning. I really have learned to love running! I want to try the marathon thing again! I think I can grow off of what I have learned this past weekend and rock it next time. I cannot wait to get out there again!


I could have not done this marathon without my amazing running partner Leslie and my friend's and family's support and love. Life changing weekend. 


  1. I think you are amazing Lea!

  2. Thanks mom! I learned determination from the best! Love love love you.
