First Half Marathon

October 8, 2017

On October 8th, 2017 I completed my first half marathon and a goal I set for myself back in January. I felt pretty prepared beforehand, but the day of the race was brutally humid in Hampton, Virginia. I started falling out around mile 10. Luckily I had my father-in-law running with me and he was full of support and encouragement. I’m set to run my second half on November 11th in Richmond, hopefully I’m able to improve my time a bit.
