I don’t really know what to say about this. It was my first half-marathon and it has a repuation as the toughest half-marathon in the northwest. I’ll be honest, I was dreading it. But I surprised myself and came within a few minutes of my goal. My goal was 2hrs 15 mins and my official time was 2:18. I was 311th out of 1057 women. I’ll take that. It was quite a thrill and it was great to have Richard there at the finish. I want to sincerely thank everyone who promised to cheer for me from afar. Your support and Sean’s power-gel got me through.
