Race Report:

My first, but not last, half marathon. Chilly start to the day, but overall it was gorgeous weather. Seeing so many people lined up for the race was awesome and a bit surreal. I was able to keep pace with Jill for about the first 5 miles, but my heel was really bothering me so I told her to just go on and I walked/limped/jogged and ticked off the miles. I knew I would finish, just not sure how long it would take. The spectators were amazing and could bring a smile to anyone's face. I'd been dreading the hills, but I thought they really weren't that bad. My stretch goal was 3 hours (big stretch there), I would settle for under 4 and was aiming for 3:30. If I hadn't stopped to take so many pictures would've come in under 3:30. But hey, I'd rather have the pictures. Crossing the finish was quite emotional. Less than a year ago I did my first 5K. If anyone had told me then I'd be doing a half marathon I would have laughed in their face. And look at me now! Looking forward to Shamrock and I am definitely aiming for under 3 there...if picture taking doesn't get in the way ;-)
