Woohoo! I completed the Toronto Marathon, and I did it with a PB! I plan to write my marathon story in the next couple of days and post it here. There's so much to say, but suffice it to say that although the race had a few ups and downs, in the end I crossed the finish line with arms raised and a cheer, and feeling thrilled of what I had accomplished.
Here's a photo of me shortly after completing the race, showing off the finisher's medal, which was huge!
