Hi, all :)
Just doing a bit of patting-myself-on-the-back... I ran my first half-marathon
I finished in under 2 hours (right around 1:56.)
And I did it without eating power bars or power gels, without drinking any
sticky-sweet drinks, and without any clue as to what my heart rate was at any
point during the race.
When it comes down to it, after all, you have to run the race - and I had a
blast doing it - and I didn't worry about anything. Here's to the next one!
