Well, yesterday I finished the half marathon. It was a slow time of 2:51:19, however, I finished. After 3.5 months of training, I am happy to finish. Three miles in, my right calf was hurting. That slowly faded away, but about halfway through my left foot started really hurting. I honestly thought that I wouldnt finish. I was planning to give up, but then remembered how disappointed I would be in myself.
I want to thank my awesome friends from my lab (Priyanka, Veronica and Wouter) for coming to support me. Then a huge thanks to the ladies who inspired me to run in the first place (Steph, Nikki, Whit, Katie, Claire and Jenna).
Finally, to the hubby that always supports my crazy ideas. Thinking of doing another half in April. Gotta find a good one, maybe in the ROC (Rochester area).
