Thanksgiving Point Half Marathon

Well, I did it. After 3 months of strict training, I finished 6th in my age group out of 69 women. I ran 13.1 miles in 1 hour and 54 minutes. It was so much fun! There was so much hype and excitement before, during, and after the race. It was a really pretty course. We got to run through the Thanksgiving Point Gardens during the tulip festival and then along the Jordan Parkway Trail. My parents came for the beginning of the race, then found me a few times along the race to cheer me on. Then my little family, my sister and her girls, and my parents were at the finish line. I felt really good and it made me want to do another one. Here are a few photos from the race.

Great job Jen. I have been wanting to get into running for awhile. It may be awhile before I can run 13 miles but you gotta start somewhere.

Congrats.

P.s. I miss you.
