Last Saturday morning I ran the iRecycle Half Marathon in Spartenburg, South Carolina.
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!
