Running Update: I Did It!!!

Today, I did it---ran my first Half Marathon!!! I’m definitely proud, tired, excited, & then some. I have to admit, at some point during the race I thought, “What did I get myself into?” LOL. But the push of my friends, family, running partner & running group kept me going. I also began to imagine the finish line!

This is definitely encouragement for anyone who thinks they cannot do something, but would like to try. I’m by no means a runner, but one of my friends suggested we train for a Half Marathon (that particular race is coming up next year); I wanted to try to do a race a little earlier to see where I was & where I needed to improve. I thank this friend for bringing up the idea---I’ll continue training for both of us & make us proud! :) (She’s been unable to train due to an injury).

My first Half Marathon results:

Time: 2 hours 55 minutes
Total Miles: 13.8
Prize: Self accomplishment & great achievement!
