Sunday was the day!

I completed my first half marathon! Back at the beginning of the summer I had visions of writing "I ran my first half marathon!" But that didn't happen, so I am very pleased to say I completed it! It was a very long 13.1 miles and I do remember thinking that it was the worst idea I've ever had several times in that 13.1 miles. I also remember thinking that my kiddos would be so disappointed if their daddy and Aunt Katie (who both completed it as well) both got medals for finishing and mommy didn't, but I made it. It wasn't fast, and it wasn't pretty, but I did finish and I'm so happy that I stuck with it even though there were several moments that I wanted to quit. I've got a few blisters on my feet and my legs are still a little sore (much better than yesterday!), but I'm ready to do it again. Next phase of training starts on Monday :)
