My Super Sweet 13(.1)

A 1st Half Marathon


I began running in races in July of 2011 as preparation for my trek on the Inca Trail that same month. Since then, I’ve tried to do a race a month, culminating (this year) in running a half-marathon. My ultimate goal would be to finish the Marathon-Athens classic and historic route – the Marathon Greece! I have too much going on this May to commit to a race, but I’m still looking! Until then, here’s what I’ve done so far, including the Inca Trail and anything my open swim(s) – I share this with you in case you’re a numbers person and desire mine for comparison – I promise I’ll never be very fast:)
