I have no idea how I did it, but Sunday morning I ran the Marine Corps Historic Half Marathon in Fredericksburg, Virginia. It was such a fun day. 5000 runners, 13.1 miles! The course was nice, and the weather was perfect, cool and overcast. My time (2:19) is far from impressive, but I impressed myself that I finished at all! I can't believe I'm saying this, but it really wasn't that hard. I think I sort of zoned out for most of it and just kept moving my feet.
This is me, getting close to the finish...that last mile was so exciting, with people cheering, the finish line in sight! Happily, I'm putting my running shoes away for a while-I've got a swim across the East River to train for!
