1 treadmill half marathon complete!!!

This pic shows my last 2.1 miles

Yesterday, I went to the gym for our first Bethel Biggest Loser weight training and yoga workout of the season, but no one showed up.  My challenge this week is to walk to the airport, but it was crazy blizzard windy.  My friend, Erin, has had me thinking of my birthday list alot lately.   Since there arent many opportunities to run marathon living here, I decided to kill three birds with one stone and just walk a half marathon on the treadmill.  I really wanted to quit at miles 10, but I kept thinking to myself, "if this were a real half marathon, you wouldnt quit!!!  Just finish!"

I got in a great workout, completed my BBL challenge, and checked number 10 of my list!
