Woohoo! Good job, I hope you guys celebrated big time! Just THINKING about running in the cold is enough for me to run and hide, LOL.

PS so cool you guys had your dates on the back of your shirts! love it =-]

Congrats!  I could never ever run in the cold, I hate cold too much!  Plus my asthma really really hates cold.

So awesome! I’m running the Broad Street Run in Philly first (10 miles) so not quite a half, but I’m hoping to work my way up to a half for September. Congratulations! What an awesome accomplishment!!!

@hotchild – I’ve heard that! The training plan only really prepares you for 11 miles…but I’m scared I’m going to collapse in the last 2 from lack of preparation! You have to figure that anything over a certain number is just going to be painful no matter how long or far you’ve run! Haha…

I still get excited for people who have done them though…just such an achievement!

Congratulations!!! I just did my first half in November and had such a fun time! I never thought I would use the word fun to describe running but it was. I was never a runner so it was a huge accomplishment for me. I am now looking for my next race to sign up for.

Awesome Job! I ran the Nike Womans Marathon in October in San Fransisco and I have had a partial knee replacement! It is such an awesome feeling having all the people cheering for you and crossing the finish line! Congrats! Awesome Job! I will warn you make sure you have plenty of time to train for a full marathon! It took up my entire summer, all i did was run and train! 🙂

Congrats! My friend Scott was there as well and now he’s trying to convince me to do it with him next year. I just might!
