halfsies


I did it!!! I completed my first HALF MARATHON!!!

I registered with the expectation of 2:30 and finished ahead of my goal time. Pretty awesome if I do say so myself. --and I do ;)

. Expo-- picking up our bibs and goodies!


. Race Day -- one of 44,000 runners. Insane. 

Amazing views from our room at the Cosmopolitan. Pretty exciting to say: "I ran that!" 

I learned a ton from my first half marathon and am excited to implement it into my next half (I may have caught the 'running bug' and would love to beat my time!) -- which very well may be in June in San Diego! :) 

And because we didn't just run the marathon while in Vegas... 


It's Vegas baby!!


.ps --
I appreciate all the kind and supportive comments over the last 6 months of training leading up to my race! Meant a ton and was extremely motivating and inspiring! #thankyou
