Half Marathon

My kids and I. This is when they dropped me off at the starting line.This is me about 5 yards away from the finish line. This was my second half marathon. I finished 3 minute more than last year averaging about a nine minute mile. I finished this year in 1 hour and 58 minutes. I was the 206th person to cross the finish line out of 862. The 94th women to cross the finish line out of 616 women, and the 12th out of 46 in my age group to finish. I hadn't trained as much as I would have liked but I am just excited that I wasn't too much off of what I had done last year because I thought that I was going to be about 10-15 minutes more. After running so much I was pretty sore the next day. I am so proud that I did it this year. Every time I do these races I am just amazed at what I can really do and just never thought that I could every do anything like this.
