My First 1/2 Marathon!
So, this is my first real post on my blog! I didn't even know what a blog was until a little while ago. I heard someone use the word when I got home from my mission in May, and I was like, "What in the heck is that, a blog?" I now realize that I am one of the only people that I know that doesn't have their own, "blog," so my dear friend, Skye, decided to get me updated with the times, and set one up for me! Thanks Skye! :) I am no longer a blogging virgin!
Alright, so on September 5th, in Spanish Fork, UT, I ran my first 1/2 marathon! I had been training all summer and was super excited for it. I ended up doing way better than I thought and got 3rd in my age group, the female 20-24 year olds. My finishing time was 1 hour and 50 minutes! I got a medal to wear around my neck! It was pretty fun. I did 8.5 minute miles! It is amazing when you are in the moment how much adrenaline you have!
