Hey everyone,

Just wanted to let you know that I am still alive; although barely. My friend Michelle and I made it through our 1st full Marathon (26.2 miles) in San Diego, CA on June 1.  It was definately brutal; horrible blisters, sunburn, sprained knee and the loss of a few toenails, but we finished and got our medal. And that's all that matters!

Thanks to everyone for their support and encouragement over the last 6-12 months. I truly appreciate it. You don't have to worry....I'm not stupid enough to try and do this again. Once is enough. I think I'll stick to the 1/2 marathons; they're a hell of a lot shorter!!

Love,

Nikki

I love your drive!  I think I am working up to it too!  Congrats on the completion.   You are such a role model and inspiration to me.  I love that voice in my head.  (No, not that one! LOL)  The one that tells me I can do anything if I try.  After graduating from Fire Academy, I have believed it since!  I will run a marathon in my life.  It will probably be after we have the second baby though. 

 So, to you, good job!  I bet you feel awesome!  What an accomplishment.   Someday I look forward to being able to write this journal.  I hope you heal fast and can get back out on the beach to run!  Buy new shoes!  (Hey, its my cure-all!  LOL  :)  ~Maryn
