Dear Runner Lovers,
Over the weekend, I finished The Maine Marathon 26.2! The weather was perfect, and I loved looking at the water all along the course, especially running over the bridge. My medal is sky blue, and looks like my race day. Running in pretty places helps me run the entire 26.2.
My parents came all the way from New York, picked me up from school, and then we went to the Expo! I love all of my new gear!
After the race expo, we went out to dinner in Portland at Boone's Fish and Oyster House. I ordered blueberry/peach sangria with lobster mac and cheese! My parents ordered the oysters and stuffed lobster.
This is me, right before the start of the marathon! There were so many runners, the half, relay, and full marathoners all start together.
My parents met me at mile 20! We never decided on a designated spectating spot, so this was a happy surprise!
My mom took a video of me at mile 26, the final stretch! They were so excited!
Then, I finished the 26.2 with a bunch of girls my age, it was so funny we all finished at the same time. We took pictures for eachother in front of the Maine Marathon backdrop.
My parents took one last picture, dropping me back off at school!
Here's how many steps it takes to run a full marathon!!
