Marine Corps Marathon, Washington, DC

Myself!'s Success Story

I always said I could NEVER run a marathon. But I started 18 weeks of training on June 27, 2011. And on October 30, 2011, I ran the USMC Marathon in Washington DC. At 40 years old and one year post-partum, I could not believe I RAN THE ENITRE RACE! I pure example of "never say never". There were so many inspirations at the race. One man in his 80's was running his 500th marathon. There after I ran a 15k, some 5K's and the Long Branch Half Marathon. In my age group I came in 100th out of 710! If you put your mind to it, eat right, train, "pamper" and rest....YOU CAN DO IT!!!!
