13.1 Miles

That is the distance that I ran this past Saturday in the Kansas City half-marathon. My time: 2 hours and 39 minutes. Not fast, but not bad for me. My goal was to finish without walking, and that I accomplished.

I was never really that winded, considering I was running for over 2 hours, but man did my legs hurt. I was pretty much laid up the rest of the day. However, Sunday morning, I was feeling fine, and I'm ready to get back to the gym today.

I don't know if I could ever do an entire marathon. Well, I'm sure I could, if I trained for it, but I don't like running enough to train that much for a marathon. I'd rather compete in a triathlon, or some adventure races.

My main goal of this race was just to prove to myself that I could do it, and I'm glad that I did.
