This weekend I completed my first half marathon. Every time someone congratulates me I find myself saying 'I JUST walked it.' But do you know what? 13.1 miles is NO JOKE whether you are walking or running. It was truly the hardest challenge I have ever placed on myself just as much mentally as physically. I AM PROUD OF MYSELF. There...I said it out loud. Nine months ago I was walking around in a back brace fresh out of back surgery and wondering if I would ever be able to function in my day to day life again. I couldn't have even imagined that I would be able to do something like this nine short months later. When I was crossing that finish line I will never forget the tears that welled in my eyes and the feeling of relief and accomplishment that I actually did it. I finished and it was worth every ache and pain and blister. And I can't wait to do it all over again...
