Well, my first half marathon is behind me. It was amazing and what a sense of accomplishment I feel. I wanted to come in at 2:20, but came in at 2:35 – considering how sticky and foggy it was, I feel that is ok. My life saver was training and my Jeff Galloway 13.1 app. I ran 7 minutes and walked :40 seconds the whole way, minus the last 2 miles. I ran straight to the end from there. I loved running thru ASU and Huntingdon Colleges. The fact that the bands and cheerleaders were out at ASU was awesome. I loved the signs at Huntingdon. My favorite was “Chuck Norris never ran a half marathon!” Made me laugh. The course was great and the folks along the way were great. Also, the volunteers and police officers directing traffic were great. I know a lot of them were from Maxwell, your efforts and community involvement were appreciated, always! I didn’t like running in front of the Biscuits stadium and then realized I still had to go past it, up the street and then back to the stadium. That is what I would change. The Mayor being there at the being there to start the race and being there at the end to shake everyone’s hand, says so much about Montgomery and it’s elected officials! It meant a lot to me.
My foot is killing me but it was so worth it. Definitely going to have to give it a break for a few days but then back at the running. Love it!
Looking forward to the future and all the great things that in store for us – exciting things to come with Matt Silverwood and MIX 103, just to name one and the River Region TV Show is moving full steam ahead. The future is so bright, might just have to wear shades. LOL
