My first 1/2 Marathon!

In November I ran my very first half marathon 13.2 miles.  It was the Rocket City Marathon here in Huntsville Alabama and I had an awesome time!  My time was 2 hours and 8 minutes which is about average so now I am working on speed to improve my time I would love to run my next half marathon in the 1 hour 40 minute range.  I have incorporated a lot of weight training into my routine and I'm loving the results (^_^) I feel like a much stronger runner now even though I weigh a little bit more than I did when I completed the race. 
 I've run many 5k's, 10k's and of course just running for the love of running but none of that compares to crossing that finish line and being awarded the medal! I was in a little discomfort the following day but it was all worth it!  I felt kinda like I'd been in a wreck or a fight because my muscles and I mean every one of them was pretty sore.  Nonetheless, I can hardly wait to run my next one and soon run a full marathon (^_^)  See ya next time!
