I finished the race in 2 hours 24.

Along the course I bumped into a guy who was about the same age as me who was also running for PSP, after a while of keeping pace with each other he dropped back at around  the 10 miles mark. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect finish, with about 100m to go I felt a hand on my back to turn and find him running next to me once again so we were able to cross the finish line together. 

2 strangers united by the same cause.

As I was more cross-country skier before that competition then I hoped to my good shape what I reached from skiing. Running half-marathon was much harder for me than skiing for example 63 km with the skies.

First time running 21 km. My feet did not like it that much, but it was a nice experience. I am glad I did not sign up for a complete marathon.

I've always had a love-hate relationship with running but I wanted to give it a try. It sounded challenging but doable so I asked my boyfriend if he would run with me. We went to Stuttgart, did the race, and I have to say I absolutely did not enjoy it. I've noticed that it is important for me to run in a setting that's pleasant to look at. Stuttgart was a little bit too unexciting for me and since I get bored in my head very easily, it soon started to feel like torture. I learned from this experience that you should run with people You know are fun to run with, that you should choose an interesting place to run (new city for example), and that you should take the training for a half marathon seriously. It did not help me to only run 15 k in training. I should have run longer distances even though it is said that that's not necessary.

I ran the International Half Marathon with the Detroit Free Press. We started in Detroit, ran to Canada and back. It was an incredible experience to see the sunrise over the bridge to Canada.

Having ran in race for life events, both 5k and 10k a half-marathon seemed like a good thing to aim for at the time. I trained, trained and trained some more. Got in really good shape and then got bored of training a couple of months before the race. I lost some fitness but I was determined to finish anyway. 

On the day the start of the event was delayed, no one was telling us why. After 45 minutes waiting at the start line people started to run. In the melee I jostled and tried to find a place. At the time it struck me as odd that there was a police car parked in the middle of the start line but others was running around it so I followed suit. 

It was only after more than 2 hours of running, jogging and the occasional bit of walking that I crossed the finish line to hear that the event had officially been cancelled by the organisers. The water supplier had let them down, failing to provide refreshments for the runners along the track. 

Along the route there had been onlookers handing out bottles and cups of water, I thought it was community spirit and how lovely it was. It turns out the local radio station had put an announcement out asking for people who lived along the route to help the runners out and provide refreshments. There were people in their dressing gowns coming out of their front doors to offer drinks. Amazing experience never to be forgotten. 

Exhausting but a must do for anyone who wants to be able to look back proudly on what they have achieved. Word of warning though, make sure you train first! A few people required ambulances along the way.

I finally fished my first half marathon. A year ago I could not have run a mile and now I'm down 27lbs and ran the entire 13.1 miles. I am extremely proud of myself.  I will probably run another one in the future!
