Today I accomplished something that 1 year ago never even crossed my mind as something I would ever do in my lifetime. I ran a half marathon! Whoa, I still can't believe I did it, but I am so proud of myself. I felt really good almost the entire way too. Miles 6-8 were the hardest for me, but by mile 10 I was ready to kick it in gear and finish it up. I ended up finishing in 2 hours and 15 minutes which I couldn't be happier with. My goal was 2 hours and 20 minutes. I'm definitely feeling it right now though, and I'm sure I'll hurt tomorrow too. I would like to thank all my friends and family for being so supportive through all the nights of training I've been doing the last 3 months. I couldn't have done it without any of you. You know what the best feeling about this was? Seeing my husband, my boys and my best friends at the finish line. I honestly couldn't have asked for anything more. I am so blessed.
