First Half Marathon-13.1 mi. DONE!!!!

I will do a full recap later, but I actually finished my FIRST half marathon. I ran the New Orleans Jazz Half. It was the 2nd Edition and it benefited the Children's Hopsital there. I am all for benefiting or helping kids. It was a beautiful day and the course was so nice! It was perfect PR weather for sure! I finished in 2 hours and 30 minutes. I was not expecting to finish that fast much less on my first half marathon! I am so excited about it.

I am a little sore right now on the back of my leg right above my knee and then the bones on either side of my knee are sore, but that is nothing that a hot bath and icing won't help. I will post with pictures sometime later this week. Here is a few after the race!

My sister-in-law Karen who helped me through this race!! I could not have done it without her! 

I hope everybody is having a great weekend!
