i lost my virginity this weekend.

early sunday morning, along with about 13,000 people, i laced up my sneakers, loaded up the playlist & hit the pavement running… for my first ever 1/2 marathon.

although running 13.1 miles is definitely a daunting task, it’s a wee bit easier when you have a friend or two by your side (or at least in the near vicinity).

with an “official chip time” of 2 hours, 13 minutes & 15 seconds and a division place of 239 (of 1252 women ages 30-34), i’m feeling pretty good about myself. not bad for a gal 4 months & 4 days post baby, & about two weeks of training. now the question is, what’s next?

I realize I'm reading this a few years later but I just found your blog from a Google image search for runDisney half marathon medals- I'm a huge fan. I'm training for my first half marathon- the Tinker Bell at Disneyland! Holy cow- I hope you're still proud of this first run, that's amazing! I have about 5 months to get in shape f0r mine, having never run anything ever before...but I find inspiration in your impressive first run! :D

That's incredible that you did that so soon post partum. Congratulations (very belatedly). Have you run another one?
