I did it! I did my half marathon! 13.1 miles, and my back is screaming in agony but hey, I did it!!  I did it in under 3 hours, too, which clearly doesn’t win any awards, but I’m pretty darn proud of myself anyway. Some pictures along the way….

Victory dance!! I did it!

Okay, I’m off to take some Tylenol and lay flat on the ground for an hour while watching cheezy holiday movies!!!

Good luck to Shane, Patrick, Libby, and Karen as they complete their own challenges today! I already heard from Shane today and he got 10 miles done today! I’m so proud of him! Shane is kicking butt!!!

    awesome ‘possum Christine! I want to thank you in the public forum as well for inviting me along on this journey. I honestly wish that I could have jogged the 10 miles or even walked the 13.1 miles you jogged, but I pushed that envelope and for that I am happy! Now that I know it is possible, it may become more of a habit!
