I ran my first 5k about a year and a half ago. Since then I’ve continued to train and gotten quite ambitious. Today I ran my first half marathon. My goal was to finish in under 2 hours which obviously means anything under 2:00:00. For example, 1:59:59 would be fine.
I paced myself the whole race, wound up a minute or two ahead of pace a few times, but in the end had my worst fears realized… see finish time below:
Alas, the world is not over. I’m disappointed but also pleased that I beat more people than beat me, and fired up to tackle another half in the near future to try again.
