I did it!

I am wiped out. I'm feeling some blisters on my right foot. My muscles ache, my side is tender and, yes, my nipples hurt.

But I did it! I ran my first half marathon! I finished in about 2 hours 15 minutes and change. I'm feeling every second of that right now. Actually the worst was when I crossed the finish line. I was literally wheezing. I sprinted the last half mile and sapped strength completely.

According to the Polar, I averaged a heart rate of 174 and burned 2348 calories.

Anyway I will have full details later along with pictures. Might not be until tomorrow but I'll post something.

For now, I'm going to try and enjoy the rest of the day, bloody nipples and all.

Way to go!! Of course your run had to be on a hot windy day... :) Hope it was all at bay for the morning run... Great job, be proud, drink soda... at least that's what I need to keep my sugar level up, the headaches and dizziness away... :)
