2:17:36

I did it. I completed my half marathon with a time of 2:17:36. I had set out with a goal in my head of finishing in 2:10:00 – which would have been a 10:00 minute/mile pace.

Holiday Half Before Run

We look excited to run 13.1 miles, don’t we? So jolly. πŸ™‚

So close. I’ve found, however, this is really a good time over the course of 13.1 miles. I am pretty proud of myself.

And then I saw the photos. LOL

These are not flattering photos: Mile 5

And then again at mile 10
(With my half-crocked smile and cab-door ears flappin in the wind. But, I’m still smiling.)

Holiday Half Mile 10

And then, at the finish. Really pouring it on for that last tenth of a mile.

Holiday Half Finish

My friend Cory (in the yellow,) came out to run the last 4 miles with me, to help motivate me through it. He got a cool photo of me at mile 12…

And my friend Clark got a good “Thank god we’re done photo.”

I’m so glad I did it.
