Austin, TX 2-15-2009.
So I did it, I finished! I am so proud of myself. My goal was to finish in 3 hours, but I thought I’d actually finish in about 3.5 hours. I finished in 2:57:22. It hasn’t been an easy road, and hasn’t always been fun, but I think that’s what makes it so amazing. It WASN’T easy, I worked, hard! I worked when it wasn’t fun. I worked when I wanted to rest, and I didn’t quit.
If you told me a year ago that I’d finish a half marathon, I would have looked at you and laughed. Not only was I not a runner a year ago, but I was about 50 pounds heavier than I am now. However, now I know how fun it is. I know what it feels like to complete what you once thought impossible. I will never turn back, it’s made a runner out of me, and I will never stop! I could not be happier.
