Another Half Completed

This past weekend I ran my second Half Marathon of the year.  I participated in the Minneapolis Half Marathon on June 6th.  Last year I ran the full marathon so I somewhat knew what to expect and was very thankful at the turn around point that I didn't have to keep going!  I struggled with my training since the Lake Minnetonka Half Marathon at the beginning of May.  The most I ran was 6 miles at one time because I pulled something in my hip so I knew the run was going to be a challenge.   (On a side note, despite my sore hip, I did participate in running 100 miles during the month of May with a bunch of runners for the Chaska Community Center.)  The day turned out to be a great day for a run, it started out sunny and then turned to overcast making it not too hot.  I finished in 2 hours 29 minutes.  This was definitely not my best time but I am happy with it!

My best friend, Dee, and her boyfriend, Chad, also ran in the half marathon as well.  This was their first half marathon and I am so proud of them both, they did a great job!

After the race, both of us thinking thank God that is over!  Check out our awesome medals!  We also got great finisher running shirts!

My cheering crew!
