I’m a Half Marathoner

I have learned so much over the past 6 months about myself. I learned that you can make time for anything that you have a passion for. I also learned that I do not have a passion for updating this blog.

Without further ado…Half Marathon race photos!

So happy. I know it looks like I’m walking, but I SWEAR I ran the full 13.1 without a single walk break.

One of the only pictures of me not smiling or waving like an idiot. Looking back I probably could have finished quicker had I not expended so much energy waving and thanking every volunteer. I was so thrilled I  just couldn’t help myself! Next race I’ll try to focus a bit more.

 

SDC10970SDC10971Finished! My official time was 2:18:21 which is a 10:34 pace. Much slower than I was hoping, but realistically I did not train for speed, just distance. My next half marathon I’ll be sure to focus more on speed training.

Thanks for reading! I’m signing off for now, but I’m continuing my journey as a runner off-line. In the next year I hope to complete at least one more half and have been considering a full with plans for a whole bunch of shorter races in between.

Cheers!
