Sorry it’s been so long since my last entry. Things have been so crazy. BrittWhitFun finally got a new job and will be starting on October 13th! Yay! That is wonderful news for us.

For the past few weeks I have been making Sunday my long run day. Every week I add about 2 to 3 miles on. I had major plans to run the Cooper River Bridge 10k in March but now I am thinking about doing something bigger.

This Sunday I ran a whole half marathon. No it was not a race as much as it was proving to myself that I could do it. It was not for time but for fun. When is the last time you ran for fun?

The first 10 miles were easy but when I hit mile 11 my body started to shut down but I never slowed down. I finished those last 13.1 miles and became a half marathon runner. My total time was 2 hours 31 minutes and 35 seconds which is not bad but some room for improvement. The only bad thing about the run was that my stupid self did not eat anything and I felt like I was about to pass out and called my wife to come get me. But I finished!

As stated above, I want to go bigger which is why I am going to head back to Oak Island, NC in April and run the lighthouse half marathon! So now I start training. Wish me luck cause I will need it.
