Half Rain-a-thon

So a week ago, I did a half marathon. And it wasn't just any half marathon. It was a half marathon in the pouring rain (the most rain Chicago had ever gotten). I'd trained for about three months and the moment was finally here. And I'm proud to say that I finished! The hardest part was mile 9. At mile 9, I was tired of running, but more than that I was tired of the rain! The most amazing part was when I got to mile 12 and I found I had more energy than I knew what to do with. And my last mile ended up being one of the fastest. Now if only I could run a marathon...
