My First Half Marathon
Today Me, Kristen, and our two dogs set out to the local park with a half mile track where I ran 13.11 miles in just under 2 and a half hours. I’m so thankful that I had them as a little pit crew, and I have to once again give a nod to the pizza I very purposely ordered last night for this explicit purpose.
Aerobically I felt absolutely fine throughout each and every mile as I scored really nice splits ranging from 9’45” through about 11’50”. After about 8 miles my shins, knees, and hips were feeling it but running on the grass next to the track seemed to help a lot.
I stopped because I was done, but I felt like I could have definitely went further, and I’m looking forward to challenging myself at the end of the 100 days with a full 26.2 miles. I know what I need to be successful: my pit crew, and an extra large pizza!
Total Miles: 139.27 in 51 days.
See how this whole thing got started here.
