My First Half Marathon

Today I accomplished a major I've been hoping to meet for the last three years.  I completed my first half marathon!


While I'm not sure of the exact numbers of runners today, there were a ton.  This race brings out the entire community.  Whether your running or spectating, it's just fun to be a part of the festivities!

I've had a few frustrating winters of sickness and injuries that kept me from training for this race.  But this year was my year!  I was healthy and injury free.  So I trained and trained. And today, I made it to the starting line.


{No, I'm not walking, even though it looks like I'm walking in all of my pictures. Apparently I don't kick my feet very high!}

And while I didn't break any records today, I ran the best race I could run!


13.1 miles accomplished.  It was worth the wait.

And it was such a treat to have friends and family at the finish line to celebrate with me!


Now me and my achy body are getting a much needed massage tomorrow!
