CONGRATS NEELLIS! I read this quote when I was training for my first 1/2 last fall. It reads...

"Less than one-tenth of 1% of the world's population dares to run a distance of a 1/2 marathon or greater!"

WELCOME TO THE CLUB! LIFE IS GOOD!!! Enjoy your rest and savor in your great victory!

HAPPY RUNNING!
Nancy

I did it this morning. Wow... what an amazing feeling. Since this was my first one I wasn't trying to break any world records, I just wanted to finish. But secretly in the back of my mind I wanted to finish under three hours (yeah I'm a slow runner). And I did! I came in at 2:52.

Thanks so much for your support and suggestions! On to my next goal... training for a full! emoticon
