As some of you may know, today was a huge day for me. After training for nearly 6 months, I completed my first half marathon! I would be lying if I said this journey was easy or even fun, but it has been an experience I will never forget!
Waking up this morning I had butterflies in my stomach like never before. Today was the day I was going to attempt the race I’ve been working so hard for. Training was tough, but I had never ran more than 9 miles.
Today I had 13.1 in front of me, and I had no idea just how hard it would be.
After 2 and a half hours of running, I was finally crossing the finish line. There are no words to describe that feeling. I wanted to laugh an cry (mostly cry) at the same time. I was in so much pain, but it was all worth it.
After this experience I just want to encourage everyone to follow their dreams! You can literally do anything you put your mind to!
