I did it!

I finished my half marathon! And got to run through the zoo while doing it! 

On race day I just had a positive attitude. I really wasn't completely feeling it but, of course, I wanted to finish what I started. I'M GLAD I DID! 

I quit training in March, I was so burnt out.  Then a week before the race I had gotten sick. Two days prior I went to the doctor and got some good stuff just to help me through.  At the starting line I was saying to myself to just do what I can and I was thinking I'll never do this again but, just be glad to check it off my bucket list.  By the finish line, I was crying because I felt I had accomplished something so big (for me). Near the end I was thinking I could do one of these again! Too funny! 

Now that a little time has passed, I'm not sure I'll do another yet but, so happy at my achievement. 

I am now focusing on other fitness activities like yoga & a powerflex class at my gym. I'm loving classes they keep me motivated.
