Wow....when I logged into Facebook this morning it showed me this picture in my "memories" from 7 years ago today.
This was my first half-marathon and the first organized race I'd been in over 13 years (I'd run some 10Ks in college). I ran rather slowly. It took me 2:20:28 to finish, but hey I did it.
This was my "practice race" before my first full marathon that I would go on to run just a few weeks later in support of an awesome charity. But we will get more into that story in a few weeks.
Anyway, I hadn't planned on posting today, but when I saw this on my timeline I thought I'd share.
Anyone else willing to share their first race below?
