Magnolia Meltdown

 In keeping with my New Year's Resolution I completed my May Half Marathon in Ridgeland.  It was a beautiful course that was fairly shaded and the weather was wonderful.
I was not prepared at all for this race.  I had no training and it showed in my time, but I finished and with each race I am learning that is an accomplishment in itself.  One competitor actually didn't finish this race I found out in the following week.  A 42 year old runner collapsed on the course and didn't make it.  So I am thankful I can finish when I do, because one day I won't be able to run and I will enjoy it while I can.  This was my 8th month in a row to run a half.
