SHE DID IT! (1 hour 58 minutes 12 seconds)

So she made it. Becca started her half marathon at 7 am on Saturday morning May 26th. Let me tell you this, she was bookin! She finished at 1 hour 58 minutes and 12 seconds. This was a personal best for her. Her last time for the half marathon (13.1 miles) during her training was 2 hours 8 minutes, so a considerable improvement. She finished 20th in her age group (20-24) and 300th out of 900 runners over all. The winner of the half marathon ran it in 1 hour 38 minutes. So hey Becca was only 20 minutes back from the winner.

Becca’s Aunt Jane ran the half marathon as well and despite an injury and never being able to run the full 13 miles during her training (the most she was able to run was 8 miles due to the injury) finished the race without stopping in 2 hours and 38 minutes. We were so proud of both of them.
