Hello everyone,
today I finished my first half marathon. I celebrated having MS for 13 years by running 13 miles.

Running a race would not have been something I ever would have done before MS. It's because of MS that I want to challenge myself more. It's taken one year to be able to run this far, slowly adding miles. I did it in 2:20 which is pretty good I think. I probably could have gone a little faster but I wanted to make sure I ran the whole thing and didn't stop or walk. I sprinted at the end and it was so amazing.

It was probably the most fun thing I have ever done. I am so inspired by all the people in their 60s and 70s and even 80s that were out there.

I urge you to try some kind of race, whether it's a 1K or a 5K - it's such an amazing crowd full of positive people all taking control of their health.

happy exercising to everyone!!!
Congratulations Patries!!
I think that is just awesome:-)
You can truly lay your head on your pillow tonight and say to yourself..." I have done it Patries. I have made it." And fall asleep with a big smile on your face:-)
Congratulations once again.
Love and light

This is so wonderful. I do know what you mean about setting such a goal. I'm a swimmer and do the team portion of a team triathlon each summer. This winter, I'm installing a pool in my living room so that I can train all winter.

Thanks everyone! I don't want to overdo it, but doing maybe 2 half-marathons per year will probably be good for me.
