1/2 Marathon #2 COMPLETED!

Yup- WE, yes all three of us, and a few others, completed our second 1/2 Marathon! I am crazy, I know.  Why would someone do that you say? Well, It is such a gratifying experience.  The sense of accomplishment is AMAZING.  I literally start crying at mile 13 and don't stop till after I cross the finish line and collect all my goodies (bananas, water, apple...you know, stuff to put in my body so I don't pass out!). 
Now, I am not crying because of pain, I am crying because I made it.  Me, Denice, a 34 year old, over weight mom of 2...I DID IT! That's why I am crying.

I AM:
  • Amazed that I trained for this
  • Amazed that I had the mental power to keep going  after mile 8
  • Amazed that I have completed something many people never dream of doing
  • Amazed that I did not pass out (or barf)
  • Amazed that I did not injure myself
  • Amazed that I have the strength to carry myself 13.1 miles

(my Sister and I)

Yup...I did it! You can too!

Congrats, Denice! You are such an inspiration :) I literally got goosebumps as I read the first few paragraphs. you.are.awesome.

What tips would you give to non-runners who are afraid to get out and even run 5 minutes? Is there a training technique to help one start the process.

Thanks for posting!!

You are awesome!
I want to try a 1/2 marathon. I'm soooo not in shape though. Plus the entry fee is a bit high. It looks totally worth it though!
