    Yesterday I finished my first marathon run! :D
    I really can't tell you how happy I am!
    The preparations took me over 6 months of traning. But it was worth it just for the moment of happiness after crossing the finish line! :rockin:
    Here's the medal I got (all participants who managed to finish the marathon got them). The marathon took place in the city of Lodz.

    I'm even more happy, because I managed to finish it in less than 4 hours (3h58min32s - to be exact).
    Now I have to rest a bit and hopefully will find more time to play with my knives..:)

    Congrats on an amazing feat. And you did it without anyone chasing you (that would be my motivation :D ) What was the distance you had to run?

    That's awesome/amazing. I'm horrible at math but I think that's around a 9 minute mile consistently? I would be crawling everywhere after that. Must be all that infi dust in the lungs :D
