I survived! Did my first ever half-marathon on October 3rd, 2015. Very happy and thrilled that I pushed myself and accomplished something I never thought would happen. Like I said previously, if you told my 4th grade self that one day I’d run a half-marathon, she would be rolling on the ground laughing at you. It just never occurred to me that I could do something challenging like that. I guess there was a turning point in my life, where I realized I am strong and that I can challenge myself and survive.

Luckily the weather was very good for most of this race. It was overcast and cool. I had some family and friends participate as well, to support me and we all stuck together to finish the race together. We did so, with our time being just over 3 hours. Not the fastest, but still not the slowest either. My goal was just to go out there and accomplish something for myself. And I did it. I had amazing support throughout the entire event. I think I’ll start doing more. Wouldn’t mind doing at least 2 half-marathons a year.

Some family members have asked me, now are you going to do a marathon? It’s possible that I may one day attempt a marathon, but in no way would I be able to consistently run a marathon. That’s just over 26 miles! I’m astounded by people who can run those. Who knows, maybe one day I will do it, but for now a half-marathon is a pretty good achievement for me. I wanted to do at least one before I get married and I can count that as one item off of my goals.
