First 1/2 Marathon

Hello all!

I'm new to this site! I'm excited to be a part of it. I'm currently training to do a full marathon in January, but completed my first 1/2 Marathon was hard... but I'm REALLY glad I did it. I took a few pictures to remember the day by (you'll have to excuse the self-portraits, my husband is in medical school and studies ALL day EVERY day, so I had to go alone and thus there was no one to take the pictures for me...)

So naive as to what awaited....

Yea. It was hard. But I achieved my time goal, my time was 2 hours 12 minutes. I'm not exactly the fastest runner, but I was just excited to run the whole thing. I didn't dare stop for fear that I wouldn't ever start up again! Anyways, just thought I'd share with people that would be as excited as I was!! Thanks for letting me share!

Great job meeting your time goal! Your pics are funny!

That is a great finish and I'm jealous. I ran 2:15:49 last week, but would have been THRILLED with 2:12.

You've got to tell me your trick for not stopping. I'm the walk break queen!
