Results are in!

I ran my half marathon this morning! It went better than I even expected. I haven’t run more than 6 miles in over a month and was assuming I might have to walk some…well, I didn’t! And in fact I got faster as the race went on! I started with a 10:38 pace and by the end was at a 10:14 pace. My time was 2 hours 13 minutes and 58 seconds. I placed…7,753th! Haha, but it was out of like 35,000 people! So not too bad I guess. Either way, I had fun, I passed my expectations, and most of all I RAN A FREAKIN 1/2 MARATHON.

What I learned: I have no desire to run a full marathon. Haha. For anyone out there who does that, you are amazing. Running a half marathon made me ache like crazy, and knowing to train for a full i would be running those like cake…NOPE doesn’t sound fun to me.

Anyways, that was my “only”(i use that term lightly haha) exercise today. Eats have been awesome, except that I haven’t eaten enough for how many calories I burned (somewhere in the 1900’s according to my HRM) and that was just my exercise. I am at about 1800 calories for the day, so I need to eat but i have no appetite.Funny how that works out….

    Yay you! Great job! I was just thinking yesterday as the Houston marathon was going on, that I would love to train so I could possibly have a go at it next year. I will ponder that though. I am new to running… so I have no clue how capable I am or could be.
