Today, February 26th, I ran my 1st Half Marathon (Applause!!) Monica and I have been training for the last 10 weeks or so and today, was the Dday!! My goal was to run 11 minute miles (144 minutes) I came in in 150 minutes, (must have been the two potty breaks). I am so proud of myself for having completed it!! I am so thankful for Monica, for being there to train with every saturday morning and for running the race with me. I am thankful for Amy, for training with us the first few weeks and even though she hurt her foot and the doctor told her she cannot run this time, she still hang out with us, encouraging us and she was our cheerleader from the beginning of the race to the end. I am thankful for Sharon, (you are still part of our team) Thank you for coming out early to cheer us on and cheering for us from the beginning of the race to the end. To both of you, the signs were awesome and the flowers were a sweet beautiful surprise. With friends like Monica, Sharon and Amy, I was definately set for success! Thanks to Sila for coming and bringing the kids! Thanks to all the volunteers, they do make a difference!

  1. Amazing! I really wanted to do one too, but I kept injuring myself. Think I’ll work on the bike instead, but keep dreaming of running.

    Congratulations…. amazing thing you’ve done!
