today i finished my first half marathon. i’ll tell y’all more about the interesting things later (things like my mp3 player falling on the ground at the start of the race and me having to bob and weave backwards through the start of the race to get it from in between hundreds of runners’ feet, or the struggles i had with a desperate need to use the bathroom and no option available). i’ll tell y’all those stories later. right now i’m tired and i don’t really want to think about exerting myself (even mentally). the only thing that has probably been harder in my life was climbing a shear cliff on a mountain within the sangre de christo mountain range in colorado. this was a very close second. i would have never been able to run all 13.1 miles if it had not been for pam or my brother-n-law and sister-n-law.
my run for the day
distance – 13.1 miles
time – 2:09:39

You did SO good! You should be so proud of yourself! 2:09:39 is a GREAT time! We are so looking forward to Nashville with you & yours. You also inspired us, by the way!
I could not do that (not at your age anyway)!
arnold, that’s so not nice. 😉
