16min. better than my goal!

Last Saturday I ran in my very first, and certainly not last, 1/2 marathon with my fiance. It was along the coast of Cape Cod, such a beautiful & challenging experience. My goal was to run under 2hrs. I ran the 1st mile in 7:42 and almost freaked out, but my fiance promised me it was fine as long as I felt good.

I ended up running it in 1:43:28. I can't believe I ran that fast!!! I never imagine I would be able to run under 8min/miles for the whole race. Maybe a marathon is in my future???? :)
