I did it, its over, now I can ice my legs!

1 man in a chicken suit
2 belly dancers
3 friends in a carpool
4 text messages sent while running (I'm a multi-tasker)
5 bites of Powerbar
6 miles ran with new friend Erica
7 road kills spotted
8 gummy bears grabbed from a stranger along the way
9 times I wondered what the heck was I thinking?
10 crazy hills on this course (at least!!)
11 th mile in and my feet were killing!
12 th mile in and my muscle was spazzing
13.1 miles completed in the Baltimore Half Marathon!

(notice the look of determination/pain on my face!)

Congratulations! I've been walking 3 miles every morning since July, and just barely edged over into the "desire to jog" phase of things. Way to go for running the whole thing!

Nice work! I wish I could have been there with you! I think I am going to do the Denver Half this weekend to make up for missing the Baltimore. Next year, next year.

GREAT JOB Aut! I am so impressed! I am going to run a half after I get this baby out! If you do this again next year, I'll come and run it with you!
