There is something very special about your first time.
I always walk. My aim is to walk or cycle if I can avoid using the car. That’s one of the advantages of living where we live. Not fully urban, but I can do a lot of errands on foot, including taking the kids to their respective schools.
|Waiting to start|
Well, I did it! 13.1 miles walking, 3hours, 19 minutes, 52 seconds.
|Just finished and got my medal!|
|Calling Erin at mile 9.5 to tell her when to bring the kids out|
|Walking faster than ever|
|Looking up at the only "hill", just before mile 13|
|Breaking into a run|
|By my GPS watch, I walked 13.32 miles in 3:20:00, |
thanks to lots of zig zagging
After crossing the finish line I wanted to jump up and down and cheer. This was way more fun than I expected. Three days later I’m still on a high. And now I understand why people do it. It’s an addiction. I’m already planning my next one.
