My feet and shins are on fire.
My back is sore.
It feels like there is a ball under my left arch, causing a slight limp that makes me look like I have fake leg or hip.
Because the BF thinks I'm superwoman, he insisted we do yard work for the four hours today after I was up at 5:50 a.m. today to run my first ever Half Marathon.
Snapped a picture from my point of view when I started the race
Remember when I ran my first 10K? Or when I signed up for the 10 miler a few weeks ago?
Well, today I completed my first 13.1 miles.
Holy hell, what was I thinking. All was going great for me until I passed over the 10 mile mark and came up on 11 through 13. (Note to self: I need to train with more inclines and hills later in my runs.)
My huge calves couldn't handle the burn and I needed to walk about 5 minutes until I could run again. Somewhere around this time, my Shuffle decided to die but thankfully I brought my iPhone along and could play some music until the end of my race.
I'm not going to lie - it was tough, but I'm ready to do it again next year or maybe even a 10 miler later this summer as well.
waiting in line for the bathroom
Smiling because I finished! (although you can't see that I'm covered in sweat or limping)
