Now that I've had time to let it sink in and reflect. I just want to take a second to thank everyone for their congratulatory remarks. It's been one heck of a journey! It started with 5ks with my best friend, @dulay.sk and now we're here. 5 years later and 100 half marathons. Crazy to think about. Tacoma Narrows Half Marathon was my first half marathon and it worked out great that it was also my 100th. Thanks @tacomacitymarathon for the great event!
At one time, I was obsessed with time. In a way, I still am. But, along the journey I went through injuries and met people who, no matter how long it takes them to finish, enjoy it. I was still strict in training, but I realized that it's more about the journey and time spent with others that makes it all worth it. I've had my fast races, I've had my slow races, and I've had my casual in the middle races, but at the end of the day, I made sure I had fun.
With all that said, I want to thank those that have helped in the journey and were there at the finish line. My parents, who have supported my journey. My runderful friend @wose27 , who has run with me for a good portion of the journey. The ones that came to the finish line, @chula1guzman , @ccroft007 , and my favorite person, @hannahcc93 . My wonderful friend, @nicole.lynne3 . To the runners who have made it fun along the way, Gretchen, @costume_runner , Monica, and all the ones on the course! To those I couldn't tag, know you're appreciated! There are a lot of you!
Also congrats to @loneymichael on his first half!
For anyone who is interested, here is a breakdown of the half marathons I did per year:
2017: 20 (and counting)
Thank you again, and here's to more running! Cheers 🍻
