Well, I finally did it! I ran my first Half Marathon :)
Finally completing a Half has been about seven years overdue. I got stress fractures training for one in 2009 and gave up running long distances for awhile after that. But this time with a great plan by my sister-in-law that focused on interval training over long distance runs I was finally able to accomplish my goal injury-free. I'm very thankful that I was able to do it, along with all the support I got from family and friends, and especially my husband.
If any New Englanders are looking for a great Half Marathon to run, I'd highly recommend the Maine Coast Half. It was great, fun race with beautiful ocean views - and you get Shipyard beers at the end ;)
Now that I've done this Half, I'm looking forward to focusing more on the blog and my Etsy shop again - so look for more coming soon from Birch Landing Home!
