I did it. I did it. I really, really did it. No, it wasn't a dream. I still can't believe I did it.
And lived to tell about it.
Yesterday my friend Jennifer and I ran the American Discovery Trail Half Marathon. Yes, you read that right, a HALF MARATHON. 13.1 MILES.
We had wanted to do the Pikes Peak Ascent, just a little 13.32 mile run UP Pikes Peak. The registration requirements changed and we weren't aware until it was too late to compete this year.
The new requirement was to complete a half marathon in under 2 hours and thirty minutes.
My time 2:19!
I am so happy we did it. I am so happy I made the qualifying time. I am so glad I got this cool medal. I am so glad it is over.
Just over halfway done. Please take this sweaty ball cap from my cramped hand.
Approaching the park, just a few turns left. Is it over yet?
Griffin ran along side me towards the finish until he told me I was running so slow, he could keep up with me by walking. My response, go away then Griffin.
