NSV first 1/2 Marathon in the books!

jdelot Posts: 397 Member
I ran my first 1/2 marathon yesterday. I ended up training for 20 weeks using the "Smartcoach" on www.runnersworld.com. My goal time was 1:53:36 (8:40 pace.) I finished in 1:50:37 (8:27 pace.) My legs and feet are sore, and I'm still a little sleepy...but I'm quite proud of myself and wanted to share.
