I don't win races, but I always cross the finish line. I'm not fast, but I try my best to become faster. I don't have sports endorsements or earn a paycheck, but that doesn't stop me from running. My pace does not define me. Just because "professional" does not precede "athlete" in describing me doesn't make my running any less valuable. I am an everyday athlete; leading a normal life, but with big goals and dreams. I am an athlete. I am a runner. (runzoerun.com)
Lostit-- Yay! Doesn't it feel like the acomplishment of a lifetime? Did you ever think you'd be saying YOU completed a half marathon? But you did. You can hold that head high for the rest of your life. You did a great job and conquered a task most people can't even fathom doing.

Today I ran my first half marathon in Lincoln, NE. I finished in 2:29, which I am so very happy about. I'd hurt my thigh muscles at about 9 weeks into the training and was worried I wasn't going to make it. Thank you to all the HM team members for all your support and I'm looking forward to my next one!
