Chip time: 4:36:57!!! Way under my projected 4:45 time. Woo-hoooo!

I can't wait to tell you all about what a perfect first marathon experience this was, but I just got back into town and need a day to organize myself after being gone for a week. Once I unpack, finish all my laundry, upload my 350 pictures, watch The Office and catch up with all of you guys, I will be sure to write the report! Thanks for all the well wishes and good vibes! They helped and I was thinking of you guys during the race!! :)

Wow, wow, wow!!! Congrats on your first race! I think we ran our first marathons in nearly the exact same time! How neat!

I thought the best part of your race was when you ran past the gym where it all started...very, very cool and symbolic!

Can't wait to live vicariously through your next adventures!
