I Did It! A Half Marathon…Really??

December 30, 2015

 

After months of training, this old guy with a fused ankle completed a half marathon. That would be 13.1 miles…and that’s a LONG distance. Reflecting back on the day, I still can’t believe I did it. This was about setting a goal and sticking to the training schedule to achieve it. Most of my blog posts talk about all the people who have helped me along my fitness journey  this and this post won’t be any different.

 

As I was approaching the finish…and some bridges with a slight uphill, Robert Mitchell, from Team Runners Lane was there to cheer me on to the finish. At this point I was pretty dead, but when I turned the corner to finish line, somehow I got a second wind and looked fresh at the finish. Before that turn I was toast. Thanks Robert…and of course Team Runners Lane!

 

 

The Expo held the day before the race was fun. I wasn’t sure what to put on the signature wall, but this is what came to mind.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was asked about what the best part of the race was and I would have to say finishing it. The half marathon was challenging and rewarding. While I don’t feel compelled to move on to the LA Marathon as many of my friends are, I am open to another goal…perhaps a sprint triathlon. (26.2 miles is a REALLY long distance!)

 

 

A memorable moment during the race was meeting and running with Al. Normally, I run alone, but here I found another older guy who I could hang with. Really, it was nice to be with someone as slow as me. We encouraged each other along the way. At the end, we met each others families and celebrated finishing. This 69 year old had a better time than me, but who cares? We did it!

 

On to the next challenge!
