Finished my Half Marathon, tooting my horn!

Just a very quick post to say that I finished my Half Marathon today -- my time wasn't as good as I'd hoped, thanks to the cold, I guess. I came in around 2:05, which is slower than my last two halves, not the direction I was hoping for. Still, I did it, and although my chest is tight and my cough not particularly improved by the effort, I'm buzzing with endorphins and adrenaline right now.

I have a couple of stories about the race to tell later -- and I hope to have a photo of my sisters and I post-run, post-crepes -- but we're having company for dinner, and I need to rest up a bit (I rest; Pater cooks -- such a good arrangement!).

  1. Yay!!! Well done, especially since you hadn't been well. Enjoy your dinner and look forward to hearing more about it. I wish I could overcome my natural laziness and run :)

  2. '... and I look forward ...' was what it should have said.

  8. Tiffany: Thanks! Do you do that too? Accuse yourself of laziness even though you're obviously hard working? My husband just shakes his head when I say something like that. . .
    Terri: I have to say, I'm not missing the marking in the slightest! There are endorphins strictly from the absence of marking, never mind from the running.
    Hostess, Susan: Thanks!
    Pseu: You are so attentive and have such a good memory -- thank you!
    Patricia, Mardel: Thank you! and Pavlova, you know you'll feel better, right? It's just finding the tmie to create the habit . . .

  11. Duchesse: Yes, there is that -- finishing is generally enough of an achievement for me, although I'd love to sneak in that one good time, just once . . .
    Alison: I know, the personal chef stuff is pretty damn lucky, no denial!

I'd love to hear your response to my post. Agree, disagree, even go off on a tangent, I love to know you're out there, readers. Let's chat, shall we? I apologize, though, for the temporary necessity of the Word Verification -- spam comments have been tiresomely numerous lately, and I'm hoping to break that pattern.
