SLC Half Marathon

On Saturday, April 16th, I completed my first half marathon (13.1 miles).

The day started out with a 4am wake up call. Here I am all bright & squarely eyed, ready to run.

After getting to the starting line, (which took a car ride & sardined packed train ride) I did my warm up, dropped off my gear bag, & slithered into the sea of people waiting anxiously to run. The weather was perfect, a little cool having rained earlier that morning, but great for a morning run.

Official Time: 
 (Accomplished my goals, YA!)

After the race, I did a little shopping here. I mean come on, I just ran a half marathon, I had to get something fun, right? Right!

And ate a HUGE taco salad from Cafe Rio. Mmmmm, salad goodness. 

It was a fun race and a great goal to complete. I'm super proud of myself (and Heinz is to) and hope to continue to incorporate running into my life.
