This post has nothing to do with decorating or the holidays or my home, but it does have to do with inspiration. I ran in my first 1/2 marathon yesterday. 13.1 miles. I have never been a runner, but always wanted to. Last year a friend inspired and encouraged me to start running. I began training at the end of December, 2007.
I am completely exhausted, but it was SO worth it. My kids were there at the finish line to take my picture and cheer me on.
Want to see something funny? This is me at 5:45am before the race began....
This is me several hours later just before crossing the finish line. My son remembered to watch for me and take my picture. I did not even see him. So, this picture really shows how I was feeling at mile 13....
If you are a runner and you want to know my results, they are:
83 911 1023 Karol Harrison 39 Santa Rosa Beach FL 2:54:06 13:18
I wish I had made better time, but I never would have thought a year ago that I would be running in a 1/2 marathon and actually cross the finish line. I'll work on my speed later.
Be Inspired! -Karol :0)
