Congratulations. And welcome to the club of marathoners.
I think you did great for your first marathon and under rather ugly conditions.
I have found running to be a great hobby for keeping weight off, so that's good enough reason to stick with it. (I'm not the least bit interested in walking, unless it's hiking, which I love.)
By the way, I've lost weight and regained it (and more), so in addition to running, I've tried some other techniques. If your interested, you can go to my Web site, http://ourworld.cs.com/scottzimmerman
(I have recently added an index to a bunch of different articles.)
Good luck and again, congratulations!
