Remember, how I talked about running a 1/2 marathon 2 years ago?? Well, it never happened. A couple months ago, I got sick of saying “someday…” and decided that I better knock some things off the list sooner than later. So, 4 weeks ago I asked my seasoned marathon running sister-in-law if I could pull off a half marathon. She gave me the green light and I was off! I’m glad I only had 4 weeks to train, because if I think I had more time than that I just would have put it off.
Race day was on Sunday.
Here I am at mile 8. Feeling pretty tired, but so happy to see my family on the sidelines.
Almost to the finish line! I am REALLY ready to be done.
And it’s over! Yay! I met my goal of finishing under 2 1/2 hours and of jogging the entire way. So the exact stats: 11.01 pace, 2 hrs. 24 minutes to finish. Not the speediest rabbit, but I’m happy with it.
