Annie from Pullman, WA (Female)
Age on race day: 28
2010 Salmon Marathon - Salmon, ID
This was my 1st marathon
and I finished in 6:24:26.
I consider myself an intermediate runner and I primarily run for fitness. I decided to run a marathon because I wanted to see if I had it in me.
I ran 4-5 times per week, but I didn't "train" for this marathon. I had been running for approximately 13 months when I decided to see if I could finish.
Check out my marathon story on my blog.
My recovery was pretty rough. I did ice baths, walking, and took pain killers.
Running Gear Recommendations:
I like Brooks running gear!
Tips/Words of Encouragement:

Plans to Run Another:
