...and a very belated recap!
|My first little blue box!|
In April, I participated in the inaugural Nike Women Half Marathon DC. It was my first half marathon and I had a fantastic, amazing time. Seriously, it was a wonderful experience. This race is a Run for Life race, which raises money for cancer research. It was so empowering and emotional to be surrounded by so many strong women.

Although it took longer, I opted to take the train down to DC rather than flying - when you factor in security and all the hassle, it's really not much of a difference time-wise, plus the train dropped me right off at Union Station, where my friend and running buddy for the race, Cassie, lived.

|Overlooking around miles 5 or 6, I think.|
|Entering the final stretch.|
|Post-race mental breakdown?|
|Because I know you were wondering...|
|These guys were like, 12. I felt seriously old.|
|All the swag!|
