So I went back to what I know, Brooks Adrenaline. You remember when I got my first pair, right?
Now on to the race. My mom and Lisa got their stuff ready the night before. Time chips tagged to their shoes.

It's so inspiring to see so many people running. So many people run for different reasons. I felt like I could conquer the world...or at least run a half marathon.
When my mom and Lisa ran by me at mile 13, I got all teary-eyed watching my mom finish a half marathon. She is such a role model, and I love her so much. I was so proud of her finishing her second half marathon and cutting five minutes off her original time. She finished in 2 hours and 23 minutes.
Coming off the race high, I officially signed up for the Capital City Classic 10K in April.
All the entry fees go to St. Jude's Hospital, and parents and patients line the race course near the hospital to thank the race participants for running the race and giving to the hospital. For more information about the St. Jude's marathon and half marathon, check this out.
What do you think about running a big race? Would you ever do it?
