Just ran my 2nd half marathon and beat my time!

I'm so excited about completing the Iron Girl 1/2 marathon in Clearwater, FL this past Sunday.  The run was beautiful, but challenging....thanks to the two huge bridges on the course!  Even with that, I beat my own time by 19 minutes (I completed the Disney Princess 1/2 in February.)  I have only been training since late January.  I'm so happy with my personal accomishment.  I trained using the Disney Beginner training schedule, stretched much better, and got the best pair of running shoes I have ever worn...all of that changed my whole attitude.

 

For my first 1/2 marathon I was ran in a very expensive and ill-fitting shoe;)  Went back to the running store and made them fit me again...after all of that..I ended up with a MENS size 8 Nike Air Pegasus 27 and me and my feet feel like a million bucks!

 

Just wanted to share my experience;)
