If you remember, I mentioned a while back that I was training to run my first half-marathon.
Well, yesterday I finished the Big D Half-Marathon, 13.1 miles, in 2 hours, 25 minutes, and 53 seconds! That was a 11:08min/mile pace.
Not a bad time considering
- It was my first half
- I had been sick and had not ran in two weeks
- I had never ran more than 8 miles in the training leading up to the race
I will say while being excited to actually finish, my body is not thanking me.
I am planning on running a full marathon either in December at the White Rock Marathon, or this time next year at the same event.
I am not sure which, but I will keep you posted when I figure it out.
Congratulations also to Raj who finished his first half also, about 17 minutes faster than myself.
