Adventures in Running: Half Marathon #2

So, I did it. I won't beat around the bush. I ran 13.1 miles yesterday.

If you read my Adventures in Running posts, then you know that I haven't been feeling quite like myself. I was determined to finish this race; it was like I needed it to continue recovering from this most recent bout of depression. My meds seem to be on track, and I have a new doctor. I go to therapy every week, and I really do seem to be getting a bit better everyday.

I couldn't let the things I had no control over keep me from completing my half marathon. Like I said before, it seems like an important piece to my continued recovery. :)

The weather was awesome. In fact, pretty darn perfect for a run. The crowds were amazing, chanting and cheering. The run wasn't as easy as I was hoping it would be but that's okay. It felt that much better crossing the finish line.

I will put up more pictures when they are made available to me but for now...

Thanks for looking! Hope this finds you happy and healthy!
