Oh Hai.

I guess I never wrote about my first half, huh?

The gist of it:

I finished. I did better than I'd hoped, but it felt AWFUL. I wasn't the only one that felt awful though, so I didn't feel too badly.

At the end of the race, my brother ran backwards in front of me for a bit to get a couple of awesome pictures:

Not yay! 
My time was 2:06:38, which I'm happy with. Considering I had to walk most of mile 8 because of bonk, that's not awful. IN case you feel like joining me, here's what's coming up:

 Don't judge - I know that's a lot of races. I'm addicted. I know. Oh well.

Spin has been going well too. Next week's class is going to be epic I think. Like, superhero epic. Mentally challenging, physically brutal (if you're doing it right), but rewarding. Should be awesome.

That first song was just the "welcome to class, find a bike" song, obviously. The ride was a modified version of the Road Trip spin. Same basic ride, just a couple of extra hills thrown in for good measure.

This week's playlist is this:

Bulletproof La Roux 3:26
Titanium David Guetta Feat Sia 4:05
Eminem - Lose Yourself Eminem 5:26
Stubborn Love by The Lumineers (Lyri 4:33

It's going to be a "ride to the music" kind of week. Honestly, I haven't even listened to that playlist anyway, so it will likely change up a bit before class anyway.

That's about it. We're hitting midterms, so it's been and will continue to be a bumpy week.

Oh, and I ran my first half marathon on Sunday. So there's that.

Maybe soon there will be a race recap, since that was kind of a big deal race for me. 2:06:38, which isn't too shabby considering it was my first and I was just hoping to finish in one piece.
