On October 23rd, I did my very first half marathon. A couple of friends and I have been training since May. We were nervous and excited for it to finally get here. We met up in Conway for 13.1 miles. Two hours and 35 minutes later, I crossed the finish line! I was such a GREAT feeling. All of the entrance fees benefited the Soaring Wings Ranch, which ministers to young people.
Lots and lots of runners. I kind of felt like I didn't belong. Ha!
Leah Thorvilson. She came and spoke to the Women Can Run clinic I started running with. She is amazingly FAST! She is trying out for the Olympics.
Derek was so sweet to meet me every so often on the course. It would give me a burst of energy to see him.
Soooo happy to be D-O-N-E!
Me and Kris. She also helped me train. She knows A LOT about running.
Kind of felt like going in to the Dora "We Did It" song she sings at the end of every episode. Ha!
