Congratulations!!!! I walked a half marathon a couple of years ago (and 40 pounds heavier) and just about ruined my feet for a couple of months. Must have been the sport shoes. I know you must have trained hard to finish it in less than 2 and a half hours. What an accomplishment.
January 3, 2012 199.6
September 24, 2014 174 lbs, went from obese to overweight
October 3, 2014 165.5 (when I got married weight!)
Can't believe you did that at 251 Si! You are a star!
My longest run is 10k at the moment. I will try for 7 miles tomorrow.
At 220lbs I was running 1 mile tops.
You are so going to fly.

Don't believe the hype. EAT MORE FISH.
If the bar ain't bendin', you're just pretendin'!
Plan is 2 more halves before Xmas. then its the Winter cross country season. Next year I'm planning a full marathon. My goals this year were to do a half in under 2:40 get sub 30 for a 5k and get under 70 for a 10k. So far i've achieved all.
2:27:59 Half. 66:33 10k and 29:50 5k. Next year the plan is to get under 28m for a 5k and around 60/61 for a 10k. I'd also like to get to around 2:20 for a half marathon and under 5:20 for a full marathon.
No doubt i'll end up doing some more odd train events etc.
To infinity and beyond!
