Debut Marathon: Check

I did it! After trying for years to run a marathon, I finally did it. I raced in the Chevron Houston Marathon on January 19th and finished in 2:55:59, good for 93rd overall. I had an amazing weekend in Houston – getting to run with a former teammate, spending the weekend with my parents, meeting Meb, and crushing my debut marathon.

Thank you to Coach Steve Sisson, Team Rogue, and anyone who has offered a word of support or advice going into this experience. Next up – 5/10k racing for the Spring block. We’re just getting started!
