Fem's Distance-Running Debut

I ran a half-marathon this morning. The Silver Strand Half Marathon, to be exact. I "enjoyed" it and feel that it was a learning experience. The most important lesson that I learned was that you can't run this type of race without training properly for it. Fitness doesn't apply across the board: you can't go from "paddling fast" to "running fast" unless you actually put in the miles. If you don't, the race itself will be very painful indeed.

Anyway, now I can check "half-marathon" off of my life's to-do list and never run one again unless I want to.

(Certainly within the next year.)
