Wow, congratulations!  This is a HUGE accomplishment, and you’ve inspired me to want to start running again.  Way to go, girl!

I ran my first race a couple of weeks ago (a 10k) and felt like a freakin’ rockstar. Congrats on the half-marathon – that’s my new goal πŸ™‚

congrats!! I plan to do a half-marathon within the next year.  The Boston half-marathon was actually today, and I had been planning to train for it, but I sprained my ankle over the summer, so clearly that was not an option.  

I am so excited to do one eventually, though.  A friend of mine ran her first full marathon last weekend, and I’m so proud of her, but I know I could never do a full!

Wow–congratulations!  My first race is in 1 week and I hope I do as well as you did!  I hurt my knee yesterday so my fingers are really crossed it heals in time :-/  Your success is inspiring; good job pushing through those doubts!

Congrats!!! You’ve completely inspired me.  I’ve been this close to running a 1/2 twice so far – both time had to drop out at the last minute because of shin splints, cause of over training in the final few weeks before the race.  I turn 30 on May 27th 2011 (YIKES!!!!!!!!!!!), and i’ve vowed to myself i’ll run a 1/2 before then…luckily the Sydney 1/2 marathon is May 19th next year!  I’m starting really small – even though i can comfortably run 10km, I’ve been doing faster 3-5km runs to build my leg strength, and doing the 30 day shred to try and get myself in better shape generally so that hopefully I don’t fall prey to injury again. 

Congratulations again – you’re awesome!!!
