Half Marathon Done! WooHoo!
Aaron and I ran the Salt Lake City Half Marathon today. It was beautiful weather and now I can check this off my to do list. Aaron finished in 2 hours and 34 min. I finished in 2 hours and 45 min. (but my chip time is all messed up, it doesn’t show me starting, go figure) I spent 20 minutes in line for a port o potty as the race was beginning, but there were a couple hundred people waiting for the same thing. I didn’t get to run with Aaron as he got herded to the start line as I was waiting for the bathroom. I was looking forward to running with him as we have trained together and I missed running with him. It was kind of boring due to not running with anyone I knew. I had to just keep pushing myself along. I ran it and have the sore muscles and blisters to prove it. This was a goal for me ever since I ran the SLC 5K last year and watched all the half marathoners and marathoners come in. I thought it would be an awesome accomplishment. I have really enjoyed running, but I am going to cut back my miles and start biking more so that I might be able to catch up to Aaron in that department. Also I am taking swimming lessons so that I can hopefully conquer another goal. YEAH me! I did it, I did it!
