Marine Corps Historic-Half

On Sunday, I ran my very first half marathon EVER! :) I decided the day before that I was going to sign up (I know, super last minute)

A few weekends ago, while I was running around the neighborhood (training for the Half Marathon I just signed up for in Sept.) I decided that I was going to try and run 13.1 miles, since it was really nice out on that paticular day. I just wanted to see if I could do it.  (My training plan only had me doing around 6 miles on that day) I was so happy when I actually was able to complete those 13.1 miles. It was such a great feeling.....and then that's where THIS race popped into my head. I kept telling myself, I ran 13.1 miles a few weeks ago, I can do it again!

I called up my friend Angie, who had been signed up for this run for a while and I asked her if I could meet up with her so we could ride over together. She said SURE! :) So I woke up bright and early and drove up to her house. Her husband Chad drove us over there and dropped us off.  I was super nervous because I had never ever attempted a half marathon before.  5Ks, I had been in plenty, but nothing farther than that.

The race started at 7:00AM, and it took me about 2 hours and 44 minutes to complete it. I was very happy with my time, I would have been happy with any time though, just as long as I could say that I completed the race! :)
I can't stopped staring at my "medal" hehe... I am really looking forward to the Rock N Roll Half Marathon that I am doing in Sept. I have proved to myself that I can accomplish a half and now I am super excited for the next one! :)
