This last Sunday I ran the Marine Corps Marathon for my birthday. All 26.2 miles through out Washington, DC. It started at Arlington Cemetery and finished at the Iwo Jima memorial, where a Marine Corps Lieutenant awards you your finishers medal. I was hurting like a mofo that night, but have recovered quite nicely since. I'm glad I did it and will def do another one. If anyone is thinking of running one I say GO FOR IT!!! ... and at mile marker 19 when life is sucking and your body is saying WTF??? just remember "Be Hard When It's Hard"
