This One Time....

...I ran a half marathon and loved it! It was quite a challenge for me, but I put my best into the race. I guess you could say I have been training for it for the past few months (not very well though). Race day kind of snuck up on me, but I was determined to complete my first half. I'm not going to lie by saying that it was easy. It was not. Especially at the end with both my knees hurting really bad, and feeling as if it was never going to end. But I started with a steady pace and pushed on only walking at the water stations. I was determined. I was determined to prove to myself that I could successfully complete this first race. With the help, love, and support of my husband and our wonderful friends (my cheerleaders) David and Heather, I did it. And I loved it. On August 25th, 2012 in 2hrs and 26 minutes with a 11:10 mile pace I ran and completed my first half marathon. I came in 177th. This was a good start for me and am excited for my next race (Whenever that is).

Thank to everyone for being so encouraging and supportive! I love you all.
