My 1st Half Marathon Race Report-FINALLY!*Upda

Monday, May 02, 2011

*****Thanks to everyone who's already seen and 'Liked' my vlog. It's the same video, but further updated. Spark doesn't allow same-page-updates for video blogs so I had to post it new. Either way, enjoy!*****

Ok, so I finally, FINALLY finished my very first half marathon race report. TG! It was one of the most amazing accomplishments I have had in my crazy life. I ran close to 200 lbs, with an ailing knee and with no support, and still somehow crossed the finish line. Yay.

So the blog took so long because at first I was just sheer exhausted from everything, so I had to take a break. Then I started to write it, and (lol) it was waaaay too long. So I decided to put it in a video. Everyone has been on me about it for months and now here it is. Thanks for the reminders Spark family!

I hope this works...! Thanks for watching... (or watching again) :P

Bless. emoticon

emoticon...for reading. Leave me a note... I love that!

"If at first you don't succeed... try, try again."

With man, this is possible. With GOD, ALL things are possible.

    I love the music! It got me up moving while I was watching your great story! Thanks so much for sharing! I just started training for a half marathon, although I haven't had the guts yet to actually sign up. I too am nursing a difficult knee, but your story gives me hope.

    And remember, you were not completely alone. Your SparkFriends were with you! emoticon
