Well I did it! I ran my first marathon-Injury and all and what an amazing experience. From 1K to 30K I was on track to qualify for Boston! I was rocking and rolling but unfortunately at around 31-32 my hip said oh no you don't! and totally flared up. I was left with a struggle of a lifetime. At that moment I decided I would push through and make it. It was my race. It was my experience and no one can ever take that away from me. At the end I was in awful pain but after a few insane tears-I smiled and thought, I cannot wait for the next one when I am injury free and I qualify for Boston!
