Congrats to you! I'm sure this is a place where nobody will ever tire of hearing about our successes! I just ran my first race EVER yesterday - a Half-Marathon - and also am exhilarated and proud so perhaps I'll be around tooting my horn a bit too. My pace was a bit slower than I had hoped but I'm happy that I finished (that really was my primary goal!) and I look forward to running other races (shorter ones!) once my feet and knee recover!
Again - congrats on your victory and a great result! YOU ROCK!
"Which road should I take?" she asked the cat. "Where do you want to get to?" the cat asked helpfully. "I don't know," admitted Alice. "Then," advised the cat, "any road will take you there."

Congratulations! I recently finished my first HM myself, and it is a great feeling!
Best of luck on reaching your next goal!

I ran my first HM last Sunday! It was cool, overcast, and I had a GREAT time!
I finished in 2:33. I didn't really have a time goal, just wanted to finish. But I am happy with the time, right in the middle of the pack. If I had put myself in the Philly category, I could have been first place!
Now I want to focus on getting faster. I think I'll try to get my 5k time below 30 min. My current PR is 32:11
Just needed to share. I think my family is getting tired of hearing me talk about it. Lol
