1st Half Marathon! (Read 502 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!
            Way to go!



              Passion is a rather frightening thing because if you have passion you don't know where it will take you.


              When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

              You'll ruin your knees!

                Sweet! Nice way to start out! Congrats, Lynn B

                  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
