The handsome guy on the right finished his 1st marathon, I completed my 20th.
This one was special: we did all 26.2 miles together. We stayed with each other from start to finish. At times he was stronger and he lifted me; other times I felt like my experience could help my husband. We talked, laughed, and were quiet at times. Fellow marathoners and spectators cheered for us.
We crossed the finish line holding hands and our arms raised in joy and relief.
Every mile of this marathon and marriage has been worth it!
