My First Half Marathon, DONE !!!!

Hello Buttfaces!

I'm rootin' tootin' excited. If I sound obnoxious, it's because I jogged a half marathon this past Friday. Actually, 13.44 miles because I love fours. The best part about jogging is when I do it, I don't know that I'm sick.

It's really that simple.

What I was sure of though, was that I would complete my first half marathon because I went into it with the mindset of walk/jog. BUT, what I didn't know, was that I'd jog practically the entire distance. That, surprised me.

So, to my autoimmune issues I say ...

  15. Congrats! Folks who run are crazy, but you're stick-to-it-ness is admirable.

    I remember my wife's first half marathon...she's more the 5K runner these days, but every couple years she'll kick another one out. Like I said: crazy.

    1. Thanks, Matt.

      What's the biggest challenge you're facing with losing the 30 pounds?
