I did my first half marathon this past Sunday in nearly two years. It wasn't easy and I was more nervous than I was the first time, but I finished.
I'm more proud of this medal than I am of the first because I knew what I was getting in to and chose to do it anyway. I have two more half marathons and a 25k coming up in May and am starting to really focus more on the distance than just getting back to running.
It feels good to set a goal and accomplish it...no matter how slowly.
My time may have been pitifully slow, but I know that because I saw it as I crossed the finish line and that's all that matters. Plus, I got a great start on my Summer farmer's tan!
