Finished my very first half marathon today! I’ve mentioned a few times here that I totally did not train for it…I think I’ve run under 10 times since November. But, I’m on the 2nd month of the Insanity program so I’m not totally out of shape. I was still veryyyy nervous that I wouldn’t be able to do it.
My finishing time was around 2:51 but I did wait in a line for a porta-potty for about 10 minutes so it was probably closer to 2:40. I did have to walk for one mile in between 11 and 12, but then really booked it the last 1.1 miles.
Anyway, just had to share, I’m pretty proud of myself! Happy St. Patty’s Day!

Congratulations!! That’s a huge accomplishment! I am a total non-runner, so 13.1 miles sounds completely amazing… I think the farthest I have ever ran was maybe 1.5 going about 5mph! 🙂

Good for you! That is incredible! I am not a very good runner. For me, accomplishing anything over one mile is huge :-). Way to stick with it!
