Hiii! Today, on September 19th 2010 I completed my first half marathon!
It was such a great experience. And it was a perfectly gorgeous day! I ran at a pretty steady 10 minute pace and the hardest miles were the last 3. It took everything in me to finish!
At mile 5 I had a GU gel pack which really helped. I was looking forward to snagging another one at mile 8 that I was planning on taking at mile 10 but they ran out! Bummer. I was still able to finish so I was happy.
It was such an amazing experience and I am so glad I participated in a half marathon. There were 20,000 people who ran and it was just unbelievable to be a part of something so monumental. I got a little choked up when I finished because I couldn’t believe that all my hard work paid of and I had finished!

My mom took a few pictures that I will post when she emails them to me and I will check out the pictures that were taken by the photographers. Time to go rest!
