That was my official time of the completion of the half- marathon. Yes, folks.... I finished!
The ankle is very sore. I've got it wrapped and elevated right now. My whole body aches and my butt hurts ... I know it's strange. But after being on my feet, standing on concrete for 13 hours yesterday really took a toll on my back and the back of my legs. So the muscles in the back of my thighs up to my gluteous maximus... all very sore and overworked this weekend. Fun stuff, huh?
The finisher medal is awesome! Check it out!
EDITED TO ADD: I just calculated my split times and wanted to add them here.
First half of race: 1:54.
Second half of race: 1:59.
I'm amazed that I did so well in the second half of the race because that was definitely the hardest part -- it was all uphill starting at mile 6. Plus I got stopped at a traffic light around the 12.5 mile mark and stood at that corner for about 2 to 3 minutes so the times were much closer than I would have guessed. I'm impressed with myself! LOL!


  1. Great Job on your finishing the 1/3 marathon.. That is quite an accomplishment. Mt sister ran the same race, I, of course, did not... but I did go on a 10 mile horse back ride.. does that count for anything?? lol..

    You should be very proud of yourself

  2. Great job!
    I knew you would finish - man I walk 3 miles tonight and thought that was a hugh deal . . ha ha!
    You should be very very proud of YOU!

  3. Congrats to you too! I hear you on the hills; next time, I need to check out the course before running the race. I had no idea it was so hilly. I'm still recovering.
