I did it!

Alas, I have completed my training and ran my required 8 miles. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. My sister and I managed to finish the half marathon and place in the top 15 women only teams (out of 171 teams!). We were in the top 50 overall. So we were pretty happy with ourselves and we aim to be in the top 5 women only teams next year!

Apparently practice does help! I started running 3 miles 5-6 days a week and started doing longer runs as the race got closer. It took a long time for me to build up this endurance....hopefully I'll be able to keep it up!
