Races for 2010

I've always been a runner...ran track in grade school, both track and cross country in high school.  When I started college, I really didn't compete much.  Maybe a 5k here or there, but nothing major.  2010 was the year I decided I would go for a longer distance -- half marathon, AND full marathon.  My good friend Lisa convinced me I was able to finish both, so I did it....I signed up for a half and full in hopes that if I signed up early enough I wouldn't back out.  My goal for my first half was to get under 2 hours.  As I was training for it, I wasn't sure if I could really keep up a 9 minute pace for the entire time.  Well, I can say, with a smile on my face, I got my goal with time to spare.  I ran 1:58:57.  There is such an amazing feeling after finishing the race and actually accomplishing a goal that I was immediately hooked.  This is where my crazy running habits all goes back to that first half marathon.
