I am VERY proud to say that I have met all of my fitness goals that I set for myself when I "found" dietbet back in Aug 2014 (lose 27 lbs to weigh 135 and run a full marathon).

On Sunday, Jan 18, I completed my marathon race.  I can't begin to explain to you how awesome that feels.  

I set a goal for myself to complete it in 5 hours, 15 minutes (12 min/mile pace).  I kicked that goal's butt and finished in 4 HOURS 50 minutes (11:05 min/mile pace).  


I kept thinking to myself "when am I going to walk?  well, I feel good right now, so I guess I'll walk later..."  LATER NEVER CAME.  I felt happy and awesome through the race.  I got to mile 21 and thought "okay, I'm feeling tired now, but I've made it this far without walking.  I'm going to just keep running"

I finished the race in a full out SPRINT.  I left everything I had on that course, and I am very proud of myself. 

So I find myself at ease; I've reached my goals.  I need to make some new ones!
