On Sunday, I ran my first half marathon - the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon, in honor of the 1995 bombing. I haven't been able to run for about two months because of a stress fracture in my shin, so I really didn't know how it would go, or if I could even start it. The first ten miles weren't bad, but the last two were horrible. I simply ran out of energy - I'm sure it was because I wasn't in good enough shape. But I finished in 2 hours and 53 minutes - not near what I had hoped, but I'm just glad I was able to finish! The recovery has been so much worse than I imagined, however. I could barely walk Sunday and Monday, and I'm not doing much better today. Every muscle in my body hurts, even my shoulders and stomach!
We have also decided to buy a house. We are paying so much already in rent, that we might as well buy a house. We put an offer in on one today, but we haven't heard if they've accepted it. George loves the house, but I am a little more... nervous, I guess? If we don't get this one, it wasn't meant to be and we'll simply continue looking.
