I just got back from my mega trip to run the Barcelona marathon! I’m very proud to say that thanks to you guys, I raised $555 for autoimmune disease research and awareness (http://www.razoo.com/story/Barcelona-Or-Bust-Running-For-Autoimmune-Diseases). That’s $55 more than my goal!!!
I’m also proud to say I MADE IT! I’m not going to lie. It was very hard. My body was aching, my feet were screaming, my legs were shaking and my time wasn’t great, but this pic is me crossing the finish line! 🙂
Here’s my breakdown (obviously, I was slowing down at the end):
10 km time: 01:02:39
1/2 Marathon time: 02:17:40
30 km time: 03:23:27
42 km time: 04:54:30
I’m not sure there’s another marathon in my future, but I am so proud of this one. I’m also happy to report that my body recovered quickly. I was able to go see a FCBarcelona football game that night, do yoga the next day, and thoroughly enjoy the rest of my trip (more on that in another post).
