It's Official

It is official. I ran my first half marathon! And it wasn't terrible! :) My overall time was 2:12. I ran with a friend who helped keep me on pace (we were shooting for the 2:15 mark), that way I didn't go out way too fast or anything like that.

The race was fun - lots of cheerleading teams, dance teams, cub scout troops, marching bands, etc along the way. We stopped at all of the water stations (9 in all I think) and walked through them while we got our water (maybe eventually I will figure out how to run and drink at the same time). There were over 17,000 racers - CRAZY! The top guy won the race in 1:05 and the top female in 1:24.

I will post more pictures in the coming week or so I am sure, but for now I just wanted to let everyone know that I finished it (and can even see myself doing more in the future)!
