SEMPER FInished

I survived and am still walking! The Quantico Half-Marathon is now over, and after a few hours, the passing out and puking feeling has gone away. My goal was to finish in under 2 hours, and I finished in 1:59:56. With 100% humidity and 70 degrees at 8am, I knew it was going to be close!
My sister ended up not running due to a foot problem, and brother-in-law Bill finished in 1 hour 35 seconds (PR for him...woo hoo!).
Here are a few pics from the race:


Me at about 7.5 miles...sweating like crazy, but still manageable. :o)
Bill (left) close to the finish.

Me (on the right) at the finish...yippee!


Bill & I post-race. (Yup, I got the hair chopped this week!)There should be more pictures from the race available soon from the people at Quantico. I'll post them when I get them.

All in all, it was a good, fun weekend! Danae loves being with her cousins Meg & Maddie and tags along with the the entire time. :)
