    Congratulations to all!!! What an awesome accomplishment! Although… “Crying is for half-marathoners”???????? Ouch! Us half-marathoners are pretty tough, too!

    That is awesome!!! You can definitely see how the miles can break you down after awhile and it becomes a mental challenge. How amazing to capture her first marathon all on video, I don’t think I could have done that…. I probably would have been swearing by the end. 😉

    Cool video! I miss reading Kelly’s blog – is there a way to contact her to get access to it again? Last time I tried to look at it, it said it was protected. Thanks and hope your legs and back are feeling better!

    Aw! I’m so proud! This totally made me cry! It is interesting watching her go from super chirpy albeit cold to completely worn down. Pretty much reaffirms that I never want to do a marathon! 😉

    That was a wonderful recap of the race. I’m running my first 1/2 marathon on the Cape in February and it made me excited and also washed away my jitters! If you Florida girls can run a full in freezing weather I think I -a New England girl- will survive. Come run the Boston marathon! I live on the route and Marathon Monday is my favorite holiday.

    I had to rush and get a tissue after reading this–what an achievement! You two rock, and there’s nothing like racing with your sister, it’s the best kind of support out there.

    My youngest sister and I recently ran a race together (my third, her first) and held hands as we crossed the finish line; I still get weepy thinking about it…

    she will be so glad she has that recorded years later! i’m not sure if her video makes me want to run a marathon, but it was fun to watch!!

    WOW is all I can say! So amazing, Kelly you ROCK.

    I’ll be running a few 5k’s and possibly a 10k before running my first 1/2 marathon in Jamaica (well run/walk). I am so scared because I have never run before and I’ll be starting to really train soon. Your video surely inspired me. Thank you!

    Amazing job Kelly!!! You did it! It was so great to be able to watch that video and relive the race for 5 minutes, but I’m glad I don’t have to relive it for real!

    That is an awesome recap! I felt the exact same way at the end of my first marathon. Accomplished, overwhelmed and oh.my.god.never.again. I just completed my second one year later and am now on the trek to find both a spring and a fall marathon this year. Congratulations on your first marathon Kelly!! YOU DID IT!!
