1/2 Marathon Results!

So I didn't do as well as I thought I was going to do but I still did great!  I think that results become "final" at 5pm tonight but they are already posted, so I am sharing!  My chip time was 1:42:45 (7:50 pace) which is a personal record for me!  Whoop Whoop!  I was 31st to finish overall, the 6th female and 1st in my age/sex group.  This means that Jessica is the winner of my mug!  She was only 1:58 off my actual time, good job JessY.

Tim came with so I could have some pictures to post.  After the fact, I realized I looked like I am dead or dieing in all the finishing pictures.... not pretty!  But it's a race... if you look pretty at the finish you weren't trying hard enough!!!!  :)  

This is me looking pretty at the START!

Now a much more ugly FINISH!

My second toe nail was rubbing on my middle toe.  
Made a little boo-boo!

Free massage? Yes please!

This race made me realize just how much hard work I still have ahead of me!  I have to be able to finish 26.2 miles... double what I did today, YIKES!  I know I can and I will.  It's not going to be easy but I am committed and  I am loving every minute of this experience!  Join me if you dare!

I forgot to turn my Garmin off at the end so the last  0.1 miles was faster than 56 seconds!



  1. good job!!!! i love your blog! my mom just ran a marathon in greece! she just came back! she does A LOT of marathons! she does the boston marathon every year! i only do 5ks. im not old enough to do marathons. even though i do shrot distance, i still get bleeding toes. they hurt!

  2. Ok! Good job! That is awesome!! And yes, you still have to run the second half of a marathon but I foresee a sub 4 full for SURE!

    And just for the record, I'm calling foul on Jess winning the mug. She's family. That is like illegal!

    Ok, just kidding....Jess can win.

    Lastly, you and Jess neeeeed to come to Vegas! For real!
