I completed a 1/2 marathon!

Today was a GREAT day for me. A goal of mine was to complete a 1/2 marathon.

Today I DID IT!

My cute friend Renee and I walked and ran it. We mostly walked!

Our goal was to finish in 3 hours 15 min. Which would be a 15 minute mile pace.

BUT- we finished in 3 hours 19 seconds, which amazed us both. That is a 13.46 mile pace! YAY!

It was a great experience, even though my right hip is SCREAMING out in pain and I have a big fat blister.

I'm pretty sure I won't win any "pretty feet" awards in the near future either. My feet HURT right now.

Here is Renee at 5! We were feeling GREAT here. We had to wait until all the hard core-serious 1/2 marathon people passed so we could be geeks and take pictures of ourselves! :)

Here we are at the finish. Hot, sweaty and tired, but feeling VICTORY!
