I actually did it. Finished the half marathon. It took a little while, 2 hours 49 minutes, but that includes about a 15 minute porta-potty break. I ran the whole thing too! I don't think I could have done it without the fabulous encouragement of my great friends. My two super hero mommas. Thanks you so much Eli and Pam. I was feeling great until about mile 10, that's when my knees and ankles started to complain and revolt. Those joints of mine are definately not used to that much running. They better get used to it, cause I might just run one a year. (Maybe more, but don't quote me on that.)

For all those who know me well, you know that I spend quite a bit of time at the gym. Not that it shows. But I have some great friends that I met at the gym. A few of them have been wanting me to try running with them. Well after years of persuasion they have succeeded. I am entering the Salt Lake Classic Half Marathon. YIKES! I know I thought that I would never volunterily run for 13.1 miles. We shall see how it goes. I haven't really trained other than my usual classes 6 days a week and I ran a few times outside. My longest run being about 8 miles. I think I may be finishing about the time the full marathon runs come in. I will probably be pasted by several. I will post about the results. Wish me Luck.
