In February I thought I was a little crazy for setting a goal of running a half marathon for each season. I was worried that I would not physically be able to keep my body ready. However, what I did not realize was how much fun it was going to be!!
This past weekend I did it!!! Go me! Out of all the races, this one will be my favorite. This was my own race. Remember due to scheduling, I invented my own race! It was on a course that I am very familiar with. I did not run with a watch. I only had music that was tucked away where I could not sneak a peak at the time. I ran and ran and just enjoyed myself. I was even singing along the way. I felt so good. I even saw a group of five deer darting through the woods. It was cold and I did a little skating on ice. It was magical.
I felt so good that I decided to add a little over two miles at the end. When I got home Hubby was waiting there with a huge glass of water. He asked before I headed out if I wanted a ‘finish line’. I just said no…. He said he was tracking me on his phone. Got to love those apps! He said my total mileage was 15.5 miles. Not bad. Best part, I set a personal best. I broke the 2 hour and 15 minute barrier. Some of you are reading this and thinking, girl you are slow!!! Yep, but I am okay with that!!!
I started thinking about my next running goal. I have a lot that I would like to do. I just need to prioritize.
I wore my favorite winter running shirt, you Aggies fans know what it means!!!!! Also, my very dear friend created my one of a kind bib for the race. Boy, I felt special. I love that it was me-rathon! I wish I was that creative.
What a beautiful day!!!
