Big Sur Half Marathon


WE DID IT! Travis and I ran a half marathon on Sunday in Monterey. They give you a chip to track your individual time (since it took us over two minutes to even cross the start line). Our "unofficial (chip) times" were: Travis 2:16:11 and Margo 2:19:38. My goal was to finish in under 2:30 and to run the entire thing without stopping and I did both! I am more sore than I have ever been in my entire life. I ran miles 1-10 comfortably, but miles 11-13.1 were incredibly difficult! My parents made a weekend of it and came over to support us. It was so awesome to see them near the end of mile 12 when I most needed the cheers to keep running to complete my goal. Travis was 12 seconds from his goal of 2:15...12 seconds! Amazing. He wasn't able to train as much as I was because of his time commitments to his administration credential, but only 12 seconds! I'm so proud of us for completing our first (and only) half marathon.
