Congrats to Meb Keflezighi,who became the first American male to win since 1983. I loved watching him cross the finish line. It was so emotional. Such an amazing moment.

I myself have never ran a full marathon, only half marathons. With just doing half marathons I know exactly how difficult they can be so when I think another 13.1 miles after running a half, it just sounds crazy and exhausting. But watching today, I know it can be done. Even if I have to go at a slower pace, I think I can do it. So, with that being said, it will be one of my long term goals. Maybe a Walt Disney world marathon in the future? Or if I ever get into the NYC Marathon lottery? We shall see. :)
On a side note, I did work out today. I really wanted to go for a run, but that didn't happen with watching the marathon this morning and all the errands/cleaning I needed to do, it was too late for me to go to the gym with the boys. However, I did do Focus T25's Beta Core Cardio workout. Another great workout with Shaun T. Hard at parts, especially on the floor with the plank taps. I think I really need to work on my arm strength since I had so much difficulty with those. Anyhow, it left me in a nice sweat. I love how they are only 25 minutes and you see the clock right on the screen so you now how much time is left.
I actually can't wait till after I do the Seattle Rock and Roll half, that way I can actually follow the T25 schedule the correct way and see if I get the results others have been getting when doing these workouts.
