So, on November 3rd, I ran in the Raleigh City of Oaks Marathon. It was the absolutely most perfect day for a run, wonderful weather, great route.
My parents were in town, and my mom ran with me for a bit starting at the last half mile.
As I approached the finish line, I saw these guys!
Amanda, Bon, Sarah (Angela and Jijy - not in photo) were all there to cheer me on!
My final time was 4 hours and 35 minutes.
Such great friends and colleagues! Thanks for all your support, I guess if I can finish a marathon, I can finish a PhD!
