She's going the distance

Sunday, I had a 10 mile run on my half marathon training plan. It was to be my 2nd 10 mile run. This time around I found an energy strategy that really worked for me. 1 Caprisun Fruit Juice pouch before the run, followed by GU energy gels every 45 mins.

I felt so great, that I just kept going after the 10..... right on to the full 13.1!!!

The last 2 miles were brutal... and when I finished, I collapsed on some one's front lawn and I cried....

I cried for the months on end I've been training, the the 65 lbs I have lost, and the person I left behind in the dust that couldn't even climb the stairs.

I did it! I ran a half marathon!!!!
