One last thank you to all my supporters!! I was able to complete the full marathon this past Saturday, May 14, in Stinson Beach/Muir Woods. Most people were there for the half marathon - there were only 9 men, and 4 women in total doing the full marathon.

I can't count how many times I heard "you are hardcore!" when I said I was doing this as my first marathon. I was pretty nervous at the start line, with the weather cool, cloudy, and drizzling rain the whole time. We started on the beach and went upwards on the dipsea trail and steep ravine trails, until we arrived at Muir Woods where we completed two excruciatingly difficult but beautiful loops around the national redwood forest. We then ran an additional 5.2 miles down and up the california coastal trail, before heading back the last 3 miles on the dipsea trail to stinson beach. We gained over 5600 feet in elevation throughout the course, and had some incredibly beautiful treks around muir woods and on the mountain overlooking the pacific ocean.

Admittedly I was very worried I would not be be able to complete this unusual, full length marathon (which came out to nearly 28 miles, longer than the usual), in the 6 hour allotted time (around 13 minute miles and filled with steep hills, streams, and narrow pathways through trees, rocks, and brushwood)- but I made good time and I finished right at 6 hours. I have been recovering for the last few days, but overall I walked away fairly unscathed! No broken bones or hurt joints as far as I can tell, it's just difficult to walk and go up and down stairs :P.

Thank you all so much for your support these last few months, for helping me to raise awareness about the syrian refugee crisis, and importantly for your generous donations to help refugees!
