We finally ran our first half marathon in Langley. What fun! I felt so good. Others were telling me to slow down but I was striding nicely. I had NO idea what my pace was so I had to ask more experienced runners. I started following the 2:00 pace bunnny but she was too slow. I felt great and comfortable through the whole run.. except for the last hill.. but it was do-able. Jim finished ate 1:42, great time Jim. He expected me to show up 20 mins later but I came in at 1:45. We were both very pleased with our first 1/2 marathon times.. well under 2 hours!! We partied for the rest of the day. Jim had 2 beer at a pub right after, crazy guy! Suprisingly, I had no pains during and felt quite good the next day... could I have gone faster?? whatever, I'm pleased with my first half. It kept me in shape for the trail runs.
I woke up, took my daughter Megan skating for 2 hours. While she skated I did some shopping or her birthday party next weekend. I picked her up from skating and we went to the mall to do a "walk through" of her scavenger hunt in the mall. Got home, ate lunch then hopped on our new treadmill to run 13 miles! Ran for 2 hr,4 min. Thought about lots in that time, life, family, daughter, stepdaughter, why am I doing this etc. Now I don't feel so well. But, I have to prepare for some crazy half marathon my husband and I registered for in two weeks. I just want to get under 2 hours.
Spent the evening recovering and supervising my daughter making grab bags. May sound boring to some, but it keeps me busy and out of trouble. Thats it for my first blog. Any mom will understand our multitasking life. Heather
