Surf City Half Marathon

After many months and many miles, I finally did it -- I ran and completed the Surf City Half Marathon!

Rosie and I did it together, all 13.1 miles. We ran representing our Hogwarts Running Club houses, abd met up with some other HRC members before the race.

Our time was 3 hours and 34 minutes. It was faster than I thought -- and hurt more than I thought it would, too.

I sprinted when I saw the finish line. It was quite a feeling - I've never felt that driven before.

Adam was at the finish line to meet me, and Chris and Therese met us at mile 12. Therese took the photo of Rosie and I.

9 mile run

Tonight I did a 9 mile run with my sister. Proud isn't enough of a word. I am stunned that I have gotten to this point.

9 and 3/4 kilometers of the run went to earning my Platform 9 3/4 medal for the Hogwarts Running Club. With that run I also officially earned the Marauders Challenge Medal.
