In my previous blog post, I made a promise and said that I would finish my first half marathon no matter how long it would take. On February 16, I completed my first 13.1 miles in 2 hours, 9 minutes, and 7 seconds. Those 2 hours gave me a lot of time to think, and I really enjoyed the early morning because of the all the entertaining signs people were holding up to cheer on the runners. I thought it would be best to make a top ten list of what I learned during my first half marathon because completing it was definitely life-changing!
