State #38: North Carolina, Tobacco Road Marathon

I met up with my friends from Maine (Hobgoods) and Larry Wasson from Indiana for this marathon. It was Saint Patrick's Day weekend so we went to an Irish Pub for beers and Irish food.

I spent most of the marathon running with Eddie Vega and Larry.  I didn't feel good around miles 22-23, but did well considering I was sick for about 2-3 weeks before.  I ran this marathon with my friends Sarah and Ann Marie's names on my arm, they are true inspirations with medical conditions they are battling.  I looked at their names several times while running and they gave me strength.

I was really happy to get through this marathon and check off another state.  I will be taking the spring and summer to focus on training.  I plan to return to marathons in the fall and my plan is to hit state 40 in October.

I really appreciate everyone's support and I am really excited to only be 12 states away from my goal.
