I Did It!

by Katie on October 11, 2010

in Goals,Half Marathon,Running

After 13.1(9) wonderful miles, I can now call myself a half-marathoner :D

Official time: 2:13:33 (woohoo!)

You bet I’ll be putting the 13.1 sticker on my car tomorrow morning :D

I have too many blisters to count and my legs are sore but would I do it again?  In a second,  Now I really want to run 26.2!

Full recap to come in the  morning!  In the meantime, check out my Fall Wadrobe Essentials post over on Courtney’s blog if you are so inclined :)

Woohoo!!!!

Congratulations!! After running my first half earlier this year, I never really thought about running a marathon, but now I’m training for one, so I guess I understand about getting the bug!

And Yay!

I CANNOT wait to read all of the details! You really did great! And I bet you had a great time too. Time to pick a full. You’ll love it!

Ditto on the blisters! I didn’t know you could get one on your pinkie toe that is the same size AS the toe. Weird!

YAY!

Hurrayyyy!! Congrats – that is soo awesome. I thought of you when I was heading to the train station because we drove past some half marathon and marathon runners. I was scanning like crazy. You had such an awesome day for it. Uh oh – you’ve got the marathon bug now! And i know from experience, it’s hard to get rid of it!
