Half Time

I did it! My first half marathon. Two hours twenty-one minutes. 99% running, 1% waiting to go to the bathroom. 10lbs lost over six months and nearly 200 miles of training runs. It has been an amazing, exhilarating and crazy journey. 


 The icing on the cake was feeling good and being able to enjoy the whole race, having friends cheering from the sidelines, and then running across the finish line with Anna and Lucy. What a perfect way to spend Mothers Day weekend.




I'll write more when I crash-land from this cloud of endorphins.

Wow! And you look great!! I just got done heaving my bulk through week 4 of Couch to 5k. An hour ago I was thinking there is no way I'll ever do it. now I'm thinking perhaps a 10k! Thanks for the inspiration!!

Wooo! Way to go. I've never done a half marathon - but a couple of my friends just did one on the weekend. I think anyone who completes one and doesn't feel "dead on their feet" is phenominal. :)
