Good job on the half marathon! Was it a sanctioned event, or did you just run 13.1 miles for the heck of it? I ran a marathon about a year and a half ago. I was hanging out with a buddy, he mentioned he was running one the following weekend, and I was like "I want to do that as well!" He laughed and said no way, it's sold out anyway. I went on Craigslist, bought someone's entry who got injured, and showed up. Not a runner, hadn't been running. Off the couch. Ran it in under 4 hours. Pretty proud of that accomplishment.
More recently I trained for (a little) and ran a half marathon. Half marathons are perfect...fun the whole way. I don't remember my time, but it was a trail race and I remember that I did fairly well, finishing in the top 10%. I think I'd like to actually train for and run another marathon someday...but I really don't like running.
