Last weekend I accomplished a major personal goal - I completed my first half marathon!

I'm not much for New Years Resolutions, but I do think it's important to set intermittent goals in life. It gives you a purpose, something to focus on, and an amazing sense of accomplishment.

Some of you may know the struggles I encountered while working toward this goal. I was originally planning to run a half marathon in April, however I injured my knee during my last long run (12 miles) prior to the race and had to sit the race out after about 16 weeks of steady training. I was frustrated, disappointed, and sad.

Over the summer, my knee was feeling better, so I entered a lottery to run the Twin Cities 10 Mile and made the cut, so training was back on my radar. I tweaked my knee again hiking in Colorado, but with a little rest and running alterations, I was able to keep training. Since I was working toward 10 miles, I figured why not tag on a half marathon a few weeks later.

The 10 mile race went great, however I couldn't run for the following 2 weeks due to tendonitis in my ankle. I thought I was going to have to sit out this half marathon as well. However, as my ankle felt better, I kept running further and decided I was going to give the half marathon a try.

So I ran the Monster Dash Half Marathon! And it went awesome! I didn't dress in costume as many others did, but I felt like a super hero anyway. Plus I was so lucky to have the support of family running as well. I'm happy to have accomplished a major goal, and plan to repeat this one a few more times in my future.

When that afternoon hunger hits: all the β˜•οΈ and snacks (with a side of water!) @gomacro bars fit amazingly well into my low-FODMAP meal plan and even better: all ingredients are organic. Pairs nicely with some healthy fats from my @justins almond butter pack πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘ŠπŸ»
