1/2 Marathon and everyone's a winner

I finished in 2 hours and 26 minutes. I am so beat tired like I don't remember being this tired, ever. My knees ache, my shins ache, my calves, my hamstrings. My quads are actually okay. I'm too tired to even eat. It's incredible. It's a completely incredible feeling to know I did something like this. The last song on my playlist was Daft Punk's Human After All. It made me think how amazing it is to have this body and be here and to push through mentally and physically. It is a triumph of the human spirit. We are human and that is amazing. Amazing that I did it and thousands of other people did this along with me. I'm taking a nap.
