Marathon update: Yes, I did it–and I am still walking

So I did my first half marathon this am. It was the first ever San Jose Rock ‘ Roll Marathon–and it was filled with thousands of people–from elite runners seeking to qualify to families with small kids to then thousands of plain ol’walkers, like me.
It was 13.1 miles, folks, and I did’em in 3 hours and 40 minutes, about exactly what I was going for. –And best of all, I can still walk (okay, I am hobbling a little…)
Although there are millions of people who run, and although I did Bay to Breakers and the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Run/Walk this year, doing this big half-marathon was a thrill..and Ms. Compulsive here is now definitely hooked.
Thanks go to the friends and family who were so supportive, starting with my training partner, David, and friends Jennie, Nava, Stacy, Anna, Lori, Randy and Laura and the Urban Dog Walkers, who all helped me keep moving, one way or another.
This was a high point..and hopefully, the first of many races.

    Yay! Congratulations, Susan!
    Now, you have to wear your medal all day tomorrow. That’s tradition for the NYC Marathon and other races.
    Once again, bravo!
