What a 24 hours this has been! Thank you everyone for such an amazing day yesterday! It was more than I can ever imagined! I was awoken by a drill Sargent and was surprised all along the course by my cheering squad. Thanks to my sister who was amazing with the planning, Carolyne with the theatrics, John with the live blogging, the Battles Clan for coming up, Ajit and Purvi for seeing me cross the finish line and everyone else that came out to celebrate with me!
I had an awesome finish, running my fastest half marathon ever in 2 hours and 43 minutes, something I could never dream of…I saw friends I haven’t seen in years come and celebrate with me on their Sunday afternoon!
I have amazing friends and family and that’s what I learned on this journey. Friends that helped me along the way…friends that held my hand at times when I was a little Weebley Woobley…
And then I tried to sleep last night and I have tremored all night and all day today…I forget these days…I remembered it today, and I realized how hard these days are…I am so proud of myself for making this hard decision giving up something I love so much and and so thankful for everyone teaching me lessons on this journey. But today reminded me why yesterday was my last half marathon…I realized today, I logged about 35/40 miles in 2 weeks..not okay…but what’s okay is that I went out on top and very proud of myself….and can’t stop smiling thinking about it!
So my dream was to do a half on the GG Bridge and I did it! It was a perfect day all around from the start to the run to the weather till the end of the day…sometimes endings are hard but yesterday was true perfection! And I leave you with this picture of one of my favorite moments from “MY” half marathon!
