yup yup..i did it! I ran my first half marathon!!!
13.1 miles of pure FUN! i finished in 2 hours and 13 minutes...i ran at 9:24-6 min/mile for the first 8 miles
to keep up with the girls as the miles went on i got slower in my pace but did an average of 10 min/mile for the whole 13...
i usually do about 10:40 min/mile...so i really did push myself! i finished 359th out of 734 people and
33nd out of 80 in my age group!
not gonna lie..the last 2 miles were tough...but i made it to the end..
with my MOM waiting for me at the finish line and then a surprise
from KK, Jen, and Teri greeting me with a fresh spray of champagne
all over!! what a welcome!!! the Panda clan showed up and my workout buddy
Malory!!! THANKS TO CAROLIN AND SUZANNE

I AM SOO LUCKY TO HAVE SUCH AWESOME FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO SUPPORT ME!!!
