I DID IT!!!

After training for a year, I was excited to achieve the goal! It was harder than I expected for  a few reasons:

1) I tried to follow the advice of everyone. Carb load, carb load, carb load--bad idea for me. It bothered my stomach and I didn't feel so well throughout the run. The carb loading is for the skinny people (at least that's what I think). I didn't need the extra carbs.

2) There weren't very many runners--only about 100. I know that might sound like a lot of runners but it was a very small run compared to all the others I've done. In fact there were over 1100 half-marathon runners. And, I like to follow the pack - but this wasn't much of a pack. I missed the energy, excitement and enthusiasm of the pack.

But there's always the next goal, the next run, the next thing...
