On Sunday, I checked off my New Years Task* with months to spare.

Running a half marathon has been a goal since I started running in college and I finally got to a start line injury free. At the end I was worried I did something bad to the “good” knee — hence the cold pack wrap — but a day later, I’m pretty sure I just ran a half marathon on mediocre training. But I did it!

I had awesome friends on the course with me, including Gab who pushed me across the finish line (and put up with a lot of whining miles 7-13.1). My parents and Bobby were at 8.5 and the end.

It was a great day and I’m very glad I did it.

I need to remember I was running to finish, NOT against the clock, AND it was my first. My time, 2:29.40, was higher than I’d have liked (but there’s a 7 minute portapotty line in that). However, on the next go, it should/could come down significantly.

(*A resolution, is exactly that, a resolution. I just wanted to run a half marathon.)

Half of what I wanted, but better cautious than over worked. May this serve as a mediocre run before a great one. #halfmarathontraining

Great #run — even if at the top of Art Hill, I was dreading the second half.
