  6. Congratulations! You should be proud because you did a great job and you hosted a great party after!

  7. Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!! I keep thinking about my first half marathon and what I could have done to finish it but I don’t remember what happened. I had 0.6 miles to the finish line when I walked off and blacked out!!! Maybe if I kept repeating over and over in my head the distance left it would have made the difference. I’ll never know. I am so proud of you for finishing, even though it got tough!!! I can’t wait to actually complete a half marathon one day :D
    Congrats to PB too (I’m guessing he finished :) )

  20. Congrats!!!! And awesome time! I actually did the same thing when I ran the ING Half in Philly in September, ended up running about 13.25 due to the curves. I was sooooo annoyed when my Garmin hit 13.1 and I wasn’t done yet. I just kept thinking, “WTF, I AM done!” Haha. But, your time is amazing and what a great experience to share with your hubs! Congrats!

  21. Congratulations S! I am soooo very proud of you!

    So proud of you and Sarah! You guys are amazing. Maybe some day I can join you!

  26. Hi Sabrina,

    Congrats on your race! I actually ran my first half-marathon that same day!I just found your blog through some of the other healthy living blogs, and I’m really enjoying it.

    My husband and I just moved to Altoona, PA this past summer…I’m starting to dread the PA winter…is it really as bad as people say? Do you plan on keeping up your outside running during the winter months, or is that just impossible?

    You can check my blog out if you get a chance:

  38. Sabrina I still cannot get over how amazing your times were! And let me just tell you when I did the Providence half that last mile was hell for me too!! I think I did what you described as the “shuffle” about every 20 yards hahaha and I also agree with you about listening to the people cheering and the music playing outside as opposed to your ipod. Gah, I am so excited for you!

    I am so proud of you! I am happy to see you finished and there were no accidents!! It seems like just yesterday we were talking about the Providence Half Marathon.

  40. Congrats! You rocked that half! :D I love your letters…too bad they didn’t stick.

  41. What a great time! Sounds like you rocked it! I did my first half marathon a few months ago, there is nothing like that high of finishing your first long distance race….enjoy every minute of it! When’s your next one? ;)
