...I just ran a half marathon this morning and I am dead tired!
I am so glad I finished and did fairly well. The official results haven't been posted, but I know I finished around 1:52. Not a complete PR, but still five minutes faster than last year's time.
And boy did it hurt. Now I know why I train up to 12 to 13 miles before the race. This time my longest run was 10 miles and I pretty much faked it for 10 miles. Three miles is A LOT to run by sheer will. I hit a major wall around mile 9 and pretty much convinced myself to run step by step after that.
But now its over! I made it! My body feels good, only my toes are a little sore. So overall it was a success, I must say. :)
Here I am at the beginning of the race:
I wont share my finisher photo because I am making a super ugly face. (Couldn't help it!)
And now that I see myself in spandex I am even more motivated to LOSE SOME WEIGHT! I don't like carrying those extra pounds with me on those long runs!!
Thank you everyone for your support. :)
