I didn't reach the goal of 4 hours, but I did finish with a time of 4:16. According to GPS, the course was off by about a half mile, it was a little longer than it should be. This was confirmed by many runners at the finish line. <br />
<br />
My next full marathon is Long Beach in October. My plan is to train well and try to qualify for Boston.

I appreciate everyone's best wishes, it helped me keep going.

My husband started running in spring of 2012 and did his first Marathon in January 2013.  He now runs over 200 miles a month.  I know what dedication this takes.
