It took me a lot of years and a handful of half marathons to get to a finishing time of 1 hour 47 minutes. Roughly 3 months ago, I completed 21.1km in just over 1 hour 37 minutes. Then, this week this happened:
I seriously never imagined running 21.1km in less than an hour and 35 minutes. My goal for the longest time was to run a sub 1 hour 45 minute half marathon. To say I’m excited about this is an understatement. I also feel like it’s proof to myself that there are no limits to the things I, or anyone else, can do. I went from believing that I’d never be a runner, to running a 4:30/km pace for the duration of a half marathon. This is beyond my wildest dreams. Honestly.
Now, I just need to be able to do this in a crowd of over 10 000 runners in a few weeks when I run the Canada Army Run half marathon 🙂
