So today I ran a 1/2 marathon.  It was pretty awesome.  I’m not a runner, but I really want to run the Houston 1/2 next year and raise money for Duchenne MD.

I DID IT!  IN UNDER TWO HOURS.

Barely.

1:59:42.

That’s a technicality, my heart rate monitor says 21 seconds.  Small details.

I hate to act like it’s a full marathon, because it was only 13 miles, but I’m pretty happy with today.

Best part, my family and dad were there to see me finish.   Lance was super proud and posting all over the place.

      Thank you! The shit I do. At least I didn’t pass out.

  2. From Dad:

    Nikki – I am really proud of your achievement – as I told you, I ran in several
    of the half marathons and they are tough. I will not tell you my time just
    that yours was very good. Now take it easy. Dad

    • From Nicole:

      Take it easy?! Ha! But thanks, dad! This was great, and I feel really accomplished right now.

    THIS IS SO AWESOME!!!

    You are a badass. Seriously. I may never get under a 2 hour…and my best friend, who is a CRAZY Ironman level athlete, took 2 years of training to get under a 2 hour!!

    • From Nicole:

      Thank you!!! You are way too sweet! I’m so excited. If you are interested, I got my race results and I was so happy about them. This race clearly isn’t as big as even the Houston race, but still…I am hooked! Already trying to figure out where I can travel to run. We will have to talk!

      • From Jilly:

        We should!! Ive ONLY traveled to run. Ha!

      • From Jeannie:

        I have to admit I’ve never been much of a fan of ice-hockey; rather like cricket (which I like) to many other people I suspect. But the fans I’ve met are an enitsuiasthc (if slightly mad) bunch.

        Doesn’t look ‘Eldar’ enough for my liking. Plus it looks more like a Harlequins Kiss.I’m looking at some of the Dark Eldar weapons as they look slender and powerful (i.e. Dark Lance).

        Socialization: everyone’s a winner! Even though this process has been quite successful in placing a good candidate. The purpose of this position could detail the collaboration required among the qualified applicants that apply for a stability of at least 2 years in a local newspaper?

        I have done quite a few term papers throughout high school and college, but that doesn’t mean they were any good. The most recent papers were last semester and last year. Last semester I wrote a paper on the relations of drag racing to ancient Greek theatre and last year I wrote a paper on the religous influinces that have helped shape my life.

        Neil and Dan Phillips talked a little about the Holman translation. Dan had a few queries about it, but I don’t remember what it is. Neil uses it quite a bit, but I haven’t yet. I bought a New Revised Standard Version, and it’s less clunky that the NASB, but not as nice as the ESV.
