My 11th Half Marathon!

Woohoo! It’s been a year of marathon’s and I just finished my 11th of the year this past weekend in Long Beach. Best news – I wasn't even last!


The last trail 1/2 marathon I did in Aug I was the last person to cross the finish line and I got a plaque that says “Finishing last is better than quitting which trumps not starting at all” I have it hanging with all my medals and look at it every day :)

So my next 1/2 marathon is which I’m really excited about. A snowflake medal when you finish?! Yes please.
