I did it! I accomplished one of my biggest goals for 2012. I ran a half marathon!

Victory! The last 3 miles were the toughest, but I was definitely all smiles when I saw the finish line!

To the sweetest team of supporters, encouragers, sign-makers, and friends – I love you. Thank you for helping me accomplish my goals; I could NOT have done it without you!

 From a girl who has never been athletic in her life, this was a big deal for me. If you are considering training for a half, you can do it. I promise you can. I still can hardly believe I did it! It takes time commitment, hard work, perseverance, and dedication, but it’s worth it! I’m not sure what’s next for me, but I can tell you this – I’m never going to stop running. I love it.
