DSC03233 I normally don’t blog about personal stuff, but I had to get this documented somewhere.  Today I finished my first ever half marathon!  I ran 13.1 miles in 1 hour and 53 minutes.  My goal had been under 2 hours.  The knees are paying for it right now, but it feels really good to have it done.

Special thanks to one DSC03234of the best trainers in the known world, Ryan Wolf.  He works for Gallup and makes sure we all live healthy and happy lives.  I could not have done it without him!  Thanks Ry!

 

 

 

 

DSC03235I also had plenty of support from a few folks at Gallup.  Both Todd Johnson and Sarah Harris (along with her sister Michelle) showed to run (they finished way before me) and cheered for me when I arrived.  Also a big thanks to Matt Nebel who encouraged us along the route.  Big help.

scan0025I can take it off the list.  Looking forward to a full marathon now.  Maybe this fall!

Remember, I search (and run long races) so you don’t have to!
