I did it. I somehow completed a the Go Girl Half Marathon! Thirteen point one very long, hot miles.
Unfortunately, due to the humid heat, my asthma started acting up. It was really bad when I was in the sun. I'll be honest, I broke down and was ready quit. I was wheezy and uncomfortable, discouraged and a little scared. I had to go much slower than I wanted to. I called Steven and he gave me a pep talk, talked me down from the ledge and I kept on going.
I pushed through and I crossed the finish line. I was never so happy to see a cold, wet sponge.
I'm glad I finished, but I'm still disappointed that I didn't do it as quickly as I had hoped. I'm not sure if I'll do a half again - at least not in 90* heat - but I'm glad I can say I did it once. :)
