"Yo Adrian, I did it!!!"

To those who don't know this...I have an obsession with the movie, "Rocky". Hence, the blog post title. I have since age 3. It was the year "Rocky III" came out. I even carried a picture of Sylvester Stallone around in my wallet. Yes, in my 3 year old wallet. Maybe still do now. Wouldn't you like to know? Heehee.
Anyway that wasn't the reason for the post. This is!

This is me crossing the finish line in my very first half marathon!!! Yep, I did it!! I ran 13.1 miles! Woohoo!! My official chip time was 2:32:35. The clock time is obviously not the same, but the chip is more accurate. My goal was 2:30 and I was darn near close!:). I can't tell you the feeling you get when you cross that finish line! It's exhilarating!!

This is my friend Stacie and I pre-race. Talk about nervous!

This is mile 1, just getting started. I think I had finally calmed down by now.

Speedy Gonzales, uh, I mean Stacie crossing the finish line!

Stacie cheering me on as I come down the homestretch.

And us with our medals after!:)

This is the first of many to come!! I am definitely hooked now.

Happy Monday!
