Congratulations on finishing the race! I'm sorry that you're buemmd about your time, but I think that's one of the fascinating and exciting things about the marathon 26.2 miles is a true journey, a story. The race you start running is not always the race you finish. Over the course of 4-5 hours you can feel so many emotions and challenges and victories that you're not the same person when you cross the finish line. This is true for the awesome races and the less than awesome ones. After my marathon in January I found I needed a while to recover and get excited about running again. I ran a half in April, but I didn't really train for it and I ran it more to share an experience with a friend than to beat a PR or actually race. I don't plan to run another marathon until well into 2012 one per year is enough for me!
