I finished the Half Marathon yesterday and am really paying for it today:)
I am super sore and ended up with a yucky sinus infection.....
but....it was WORTH it!!
There is nothing like having a goal and achieving it.
We went to Indy for the whole weekend and we had a lot of fun:)
We went down with our friends who also ran the race. My friend Jamie is a certified personal trainer and she ROCKS!!! She ran the race in 1 hour and 36 minutes.....AMAZING:)
Anywho....I had to have a little glass of vino the night before the race.....
Just one though:)
Got up in the morning and headed down to the start line....
It was FREEZING and WINDY....
I had my husband/cheerleader with me!! What a trooper to go and sit out there in that weather for me:)
Oh and he got his own personal best....
the first to get a wrist band for the beer garden!!! He was tailgating our run!
Here I am getting ready for take off:)
I look like such a dork!! My hair was just crazy. Owell....I never worry about what I look like when I workout! I was just excited to do the run:)
Do you worry about how you look when you workout?!?!
And the AFTER!
I was so darn proud of myself....I may have shed a tear when I crossed that finish line! That is what I love about doing things like this!
There are times in when I am training that I feel like ...... why do I do this....
But then when you meet your goal......there is NO feeling like that in the world:)
My only goal for this run was to do it in a 10 min/mile pace ....
And I did....and that was even with stopping for a bathroom break! I know it's not super fast....but not too bad for my first half marathon.....well really it was my second but my first one I walked the whole time....
I just couldn't believe I actually did it!
and I have already decided that i'll do another one with a different goal in mind! I'll keep you posted!
After all that.....it was time for some lunch and you guessed it.....VINO:)
After lunch we got ourselves cutesified up and went out on the town:)
fun....fun....fun!!! :) :) :)
There you have it! Don't ever give up on your goals and dreams!! With a little hard work and determination they will come true and you'll be so proud of yourself:)
