Surf City Half Marathon

I had a whole overview of the race including day before, warm up and updates by mile. Decided since I don’t think that many people care or even read this I’ll keep it short.

Goal was sub 1:30:00 and I was able to finish in 1:29:06! Strava result here. MIssed the first wave because I had to poop so I had to weave through the second wave in the first few miles! Super ecstatic about this finish! Can’t wait to see what this year holds more me!

That being said, I hit one of my goals this year of a sub 1:30 Half. My other goals for year are:

5K – 18:00

10K – 40:00

Marathon – 3:25:00

2017 Coming to an End

2017 is coming to an end and this year I made a change in lifestyle from sitting around at carshows on weekends to running. In June I did my first 5k, finishing and feeling like my lungs are going to explode…  nearing to 190lbs in body weight it was definitely a challenge. Now I’ve dropped 30lbs, running has become very enjoyable and training for a marathon is not something I would have ever thought I would be doing.

Never would I have imagined that I would run for fun, running to the point where I actually feel good physically and mentally is not something that was ever on my radar. I’ve met some of the best people I know and they give nothing but encouragement to me and everyone around them. Thank you to @congruns for bringing me into the running world as well as @minimallmilers and @long_beach_running_club for pushing me along my journey to whatever my end goal is. I can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store for me and my running journey.
