Ocala Marathon finish

I finished the race smiling and actually somewhat sprinting to the finish. This is a huge improvement over my last race, where I limped part of the way through the finish shoot and was so mentally fried that I wouldn't have recognized my family if they were standing right in front of me with name cards.

We just got back from our trip to Florida, so the full race details will be forthcoming tomorrow.

But for now the official results are 4:01:04.9, 4th in age group, 14th female, and 58th overall. Two-minute PR.

Thanks for all of your good wishes and happy e-vibes. This race was very internal, meaning I could count the number of race spectators on my fingers, and it helped to think of all you inspiring runners around the country! I love you all!
