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.
Love the Medal this year.

Congrats on training, finishing, and the great time!

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.
