I Ran a Half Marathon!

   It was a personal challenge I had set for myself to run a half marathon and many weeks of training led up to this day.

Last kisses for Sophia before the run.

Waiting for the race to start.  It was quite a chilly morning!

And the race begins!

 In the middle of the race at 6.5 miles.

Finishing the race!  I ran 13.1 miles at a time of 2 hours and 34 minutes.  Slowly but surely I ran the whole thing!

 My medal of accomplishment!  Everyone received a medal as they crossed the finish line.

It was a great race overall.  A nice long run through a beautiful neighborhood on a lovely fall morning.  I had a great experience running this half-marathon and look forward to running another one in the future!
