I’m on an official #FirstHalfMarathon countdown because it’s only 6 days away AND because I can AND because I have worked SO hard to get to where I am today.
I started this journey from ZERO. I remember the days that breathing and running at the same time was almost impossible. I remember when I could not run for more than 200 meters without losing my breath. I remember the first time I ever did a 5K 🏃🏼♀️
I am genuinely proud of all the work I have done to get to where I am today, but mostly I am thankful for the beautiful people who have been with me daily encouraging me and guiding me. Forever thankful 💕@theonelaurahermosa@arospiojo@rivercita@jose_mayans@caroricardo77@linciate@aquilesinciarte
So here's the official time for my VHM yesterday. I'm exactly 1 second behind my beloved pacer. I'm so lucky and thankful for her willingness to accompanying me on my first HM otherwise I think I would probably stop pushing myself to run at km19 ( or perhaps km 16?? 😂😂😂).... and she could actually easily finish in less then 3 hours, I even told her to go ahead but she stick by me, layan sembang2 dalam hujan. Macam maneee la ahkak tak sayang dia weh...😚😚😚 Anyway, need to train even harder after this because more HM awaits this year....huhu.... and next time no more pacer cantik baik hati with me...have to learn to survive on my own✌💪💪💪 #virginhalfmarathon#firsthalfmarathon#21kmrun#twincitymarathon#twincitymarathon2018#pacerpalingcantik#masihbelummoveon

So yesterday I managed to complete the Farnborough Winter Half Marathon in 2 hours 11 minutes. At mile 7 it started to snow pretty heavily and by mile 10 pretty much everything started to hurt. But now after a big sleep I feel quite proud and a little less sore!! Might try again in the summer to get that time down!! #farnboroughwinterhalf#firsthalfmarathon#thepainwasworthit

Well yesterday went much better than expected! 😃 I ran F3 half on very sore brick legs and managed to pull off my 3rd fastest half marathon time! Woot woot! This was my first half EVER last year (started with ultras before bc my dad wouldn’t have it any other way 😂) but anyway I’m so happy with my progress! Positivity, hard work and speed training year round really pays off! On the road to Boston 2018...great training run in the books! 🤗 I have a feeling it’s going to be a good running year for all of us, happy trails friends! 😁🏃🏼♀️ Shout out to @ohseas7 for running a second year with me at this race!!!! Note to Hoka, I love the Clifton 4’s for so many different running events! Thanks! #hokaflyer#timetofly#firsthalfmarathon#justkeeprunning#f3
