Philidelphia Half 2009

On November 22nd, 2009, I ran my first half marathon. It was AMAZING and I finished 4 minutes faster than my goal time at 2:16:16! The course kicked off in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art "Rocky" steps and headed down the scenic Benjamin Franklin Parkway lined with International Flags. So cool & such incredible energy.

My parents flew in from sunny Florida and were awesome enough to get up early so they could be at the start in the cold 7am weather. They took some great pictures!

The best part? Seeing the proud & excited looks on my parents' faces each time they saw me along the race path. I had a stupid grin on my face almost the entire time & they did a great job of capturing it ;) That's me in the hot pink jacket & blue headband.

Next up, the NYC Half Marathon on March 21st, 2010. What can I say, I'm addicted! Happy Running.....
