The Papillion Half Marathon – Check It Off The List!

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 of 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!
