I Finished My Half Marathon!

Hey guys! This is just a quick post to let you know that I finished my half marathon today! The weather was cool and very windy, but all in all I did well, actually VERY well… I set a new post-babies personal best! My finishing time was 2:00:30! I’m so excited!

I was hoping to break two hours, as I have quite a race history of FLIRTING with two hours – 2:01, 2:04, 2:06, 2:08 etc… Those results are from almost ten years ago while I was still in my late twenties, so it feels really good to know that this mom of 3, who is closing in on 40, and is still nursing a baby can still run!

I’m off to celebrate with a much deserved Guinness now that the baby is asleep:


Tomorrow I’ll give you my full race report – I promise!

    great job on finishing up your half, that is awesome!! I did my first on Saturday and I wasn’t close to your time but I sure think a Guinness is well deserved!!

    Congratulations on your first half. I did my first one almost exactly 1 year ago. I can’t wait to do a full but my work schedule makes the training for a full difficult. Conrats again
