How you enjoy your first marathon.
A couple of weeks have passed and I am still tingling from the experience of running my first full marathon in Vancouver, BC. The long frigid training runs in the middle of one of the harshest winters are just a blurry memory now that I have that medal around my neck. Here is how it played out: My boyfriend and I arrived in Vancouver a couple of days in advance to get used to the time zone difference of 4 hours. We deliberately planned on doing nothing those 2 days and we accomplished just that. We were staying with family so it was a pleasant visit. We moved to a hotel the night before and stayed the night of just to be close to the finish line.
We spent the afternoon at the Race Expo/ Wellness event. Wandering around and taking it easy on the legs.
