Forgive the all-caps, I'm just still very excited about this. Since I started running half marathons in 2013, my most consistent goal has been to finish one in under 2 hours. AND I FINALLY DID IT!

At the moment, I'm preparing for (yet another) snowstorm (the second one this March, NOT THAT I'M BITTER).
