Hello loves!

Thank you Sam for asking about my half marathon.

13.1 miles.

I did my best on a VERY HILLY course. 90% of the course consisted of very steep hills.

I finished in 2:20.

I was the last one to cross the finish line!

There were only 73 runners - a group who usually trains on this 13 mile loop for a full 26.2 marathon. They were young, in pristine condition..then..there was me.

A young girl surged past me on mile 12...and I let her have the lead. There was no way I was going to run her down..I felt that would be poor sportsmanship.

So Doris Day did finish. Last.

Give youorself a big pat on the back, and some serious leg massaging.

WTG Doris!

Even last is better than I could have done. I bike 4 miles and that is enough for me, tried 6 miles once and it was rough to say the least. And that's on mostly flat trail w/ breaks. You have my utmost admiration.
