Half Marathon

On September 19th Erin, Shonee, and I ran in our very first half marathon!! It was pretty tough but we're glad to say we finished!! It was really hot outside and the description online of the race was rolling hills, flat, fast stretches and breathtaking scenery...i think not!! We didn't realize that the course was the same one the military trained on so the hills were more like mountains and definitely not rolling and the scenery not so breathtaking mostly weeds and dirt!! By the end we were exhausted but we ran 13.1 miles not too shabby!! We hope to do another one in January that is a FLAT course so we'll see!!
