Thanks everyone! It was really a great experience, even though during those last couple of miles I thought otherwise!!!

I did my very first half this last May (2012) and I am still in disbelief that I was able to accomplish such distance. It has been the longest I have run. I am amazed at myself.

I can't wait to do it again. I will be doing the same race this May 2013. Maybe this time I will believe it.

Marisa, in my opinion, you picked one of the best venues for your first Half. I ran Savannah for my full last year and I just loved it. I love Savannah. I wish I could have done it this year too, but maybe the Savannah Half next year.

Congratulations.

Love the Medal this year.

Hi, my name is Marisa! I actually just ran my first half marathon this past Saturday (Rock 'n' Roll Savannah Half). My best friend and I trained for the last few months, and we think we did fairly well for our first one! My time was 2:34:43. I would like to run more halfs in the future, so hopefully I can get some advice from others on this SparkTeam so that next go round I have an even better time. emoticon
