1st Half Marathon! (Read 503 times)

    I ran my first half marathon this morning! and I am officially hooked! My unofficial time was 2:00:11, I'm thinking it will be sub 2 when the chip time comes in because I started pretty near the middle of the herd of 2500 people. I definitely learned some things, and am just so excited I got to experience such a great race. I am so ready to run another one, and to start training for the full! Running is awesome!

          Good for you - that's great!

                  Great first race!

                    Congrats on you first half. I like your enthusiasm. I think you'll love the full...
                      thanks everyone! I just loved that I was able to have a good experience for my first one. I was honestly afraid I would end up hating it, but that was luckily not the case.

                        Sub 2 for a first...that is fantastic! I've done 3 HMs, now...my goal is sub 2 (gotta drop 4 minutes)! I love that distance, too. I plan to do a full next Fall, but I have a feeling that the half will still be my favorite...it's just perfect! Smile k
