I did it!! I conquered the goal!! 6 years (and two kids) after running my very first half marathon, I have finally ran my SECOND half marathon! It feels good! AND, I ran it almost 35 minutes faster than my first one. Because I'm a sap, I got a little teary eyed at the finish. Finish time was 2 hours and 16 minutes.
And I was greeted with the most amazing sparkly poster, some flowers, and my favorite people cheering me on at the finish. It was so wonderful!!
