The Half in Pictures...

...this was the starting line and isn't even HALF the people that did the half marathon plus there was a wheelchair race, a 5k and a 10k!!!
This was at the beginning of the race, look at me all smiles!Did I ever tell you that I met an awesome woman on Daily Mile named Sherrie? Sherrie is a seasoned half and full marathon runner and she offered to pace me and run the entire race with me. I don't know what I would have done without her...she's AMAZING!!! Here we are at mile 10, still smiling...
My godsend, Sherrie, who helped me complete my first half marathon!
To be honest, in all the pictures I have, I'm smiling because I was having fun. I mean, yeah I'd get to a mile marker and count how many miles we had left and I'd think to myself that I still have to run for at least another hour and I couldn't get over how flippin' hot it was but we just had fun!

Finding a running motivator friend is always a good idea. Glad you all made it fun.

That is so cool that you found a partner to run with through the Daily Mile! You remind me of my mom with your love of running. I'm trying to love it, really, I am, but ugh, most days I hate it, lol.
