So, I did it! I ran my first 1/2 marathon today.
It was a great run.
I ran it in 2:45:46, which is faster than I expected!
Now I'm sitting here with an ice pack on my stomach. We think it's a hernia, but will get it checked out tomorrow. I noticed it about 2 hours after the race. I thought it was just from the tie of my shorts that pushed up against that area, but now I'm thinking hernia.
Anyway...all in all a great day!
