This morning, my alarm went off at 4:30 a.m., I rolled out of bed, got dressed and headed downtown.
What was I doing this early on a Sunday? That's simple, running my first half marathon!
Yep, all that training I was talking about for months was finally about to pay off. I met a few of my run group members and crossed the start line of the Rock n' Roll half marathon at 8:15 a.m. The weather was a little on the hot side, and I had to stop at one of the medical stations around mile 6 due to a sharp pain in my foot thanks to my shoe.
2 hours and 45 min. later I finished the race and was greeted by a group of my friends.
Man, even though I have jello legs now it felt amazing.
So happy I get to cross running a half marathon off of my bucket list. Now, to convince my husband to run one with me when he gets back.
