I wasn't too thrilled originally to travel to Nebraska. I didn't want to leave Boston! I met up and shared an AirBnb with my good friend Alison Black.Alison and I did an early start which was an adventure. The marathon was delayed because there was a shooting on the marathon course. Thankfully, Alison and I missed the shooting, but the area in which it took place was an area that we were close to at the same time of the incident.
I enjoyed the marathon course and felt pretty good the last 3 miles. The finish was inside of the TD Ameritrade baseball park which was really cool.
I really felt like my dad was with me during this marathon. Some of the street lights kept flickering on and off while running in the dark. My dad used to tell me that he turned them on and off with his brain! LOL!
I also felt like my grandmother (dad's mother) was with me because I kept seeing so many beautiful monarch butterflies.
I am really grateful to have another state behind me. This was my 38th full marathon. I am getting closer to 40 states which makes me very excited. Thanks everyone for your support.
