For those that don't know, I recently ran the Twin Cities Marathon. It was the culmination of a few months of hard work, and was worth every minute of it! I had been training with my cousin Tim, who has ran Grandma's, NY, and Chicago. It was a gorgeous day and I had a great time running. Mindy and Laura (Tim's wife), my parents, and my Aunt and Uncle Pete and Mary Lou were there to cheer me (us) on as we got closer to the finish line.
The hardest part: was the last 6 miles. Going along Summit Ave is truly grueling due to the slight incline that you must compete with along the way.
The most memorable part: seeing Mindy and Shane and Kellie as I ran through the final 100 feet and having them cheer for me!
