Last weekend, I participated in my first half-marathon race in Fort Wayne with the Fort4Fitness event. I registered with a couple of friends of mine and we were determined to complete the whole thing starting together and finishing together. At first, I was not sure if I was going to be able to run the whole thing, which was my goal. I did a great job throughout. I would have easily been able to run the whole thing. The two other friends of mine, however, didn’t seem to be as prepared as I was. Near the end, their legs started to give out on them and we walked most of the end of the race. We completed with a time of 2:42:39. It felt so great after the race. We got a medal and a bunch snacks at the finish line. After the experience, it made me want to run another half-marathon right away! It was so much fun with all of the people alongside of you completing this awesome goal as well. I have been experiencing some knee pain still a week later after the race, but it seems to be healing alright and feeling better.
I can’t wait until the next time I will be able to run a half-marathon race. I have a time to beat!
