Running again…

Yesterday I ran in the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon.  It was an experience to remember!  This being my first half marathon I wasn’t sure what to expect.  I’ve never run 13 miles at once.  I wasn’t sure how my body would respond.  But this I knew: I would finish. 

I did.  (I don’t do this a lot, but do you mind if I brag on myself a bit?) I set out to finish the race in an hour and fifty-seven minutes.  (That’s how long it would take me to finish if I ran a nine minute mile the whole way without stopping.) 

When the results came in I was pleased and shocked!  I ran an average of 8 minutes and 40 seconds a mile, finishing the race in an hour and fifty-FIVE minutes.  (Hey, the extra two minutes really do count when it comes to racing!)

Thank you to everyone who came out to support the runners.  Here are a couple pics to enjoy!
