After 1 year of my blog and 3 years trying to run, I made it. Last Sunday, August 28th, 2011 I accomplished my 1st half marathon. I was looking forward for this day, although I couldn't have the proper preparation because of the double burden of work and the brilliant idea of giving vacation to our maid this month.
I was afraid of not being able to make it but I did. As soon as I saw my friends' energy, everything turns to motivation and dreams and we just have to put one foot after the other and take advantage of different people, new air, beautiful places and when we realize we are there, coming to the end.
This Sunday was one of the best in my life, I saw friends, ran around places the city I work in and won one more barrier in life and I made my first 21KM in 2h14min.
In this race I had the opportunity to test the ECOHEAD, an ecological headband that helps the runner in different ways. As my start was at 6:30a.m. I used it as a scarf. There were some other runners using the Ecohead as hair band and as hat. This was one of the most versatile product Marcus Araujo from Pro Ativa has sent me. I simply loved it. This is the link that explains clearer how to use the ECOHEAD:
ECOHEAD can be used in many ways as we can see the photo below and it is also an ecological product becaiuse it is made by 2 PET bottles, it is a product that fits any sports person. In my opinion it is an excellent present for someone who likes sports and thinking green.

However, it is among the Tucanos from Rolândia that I had had the biggest support and motivation to run. Running has changed my life, I can't stop saying that it has brought me a better humor, better health, new ways to face problems in life and great friends, some of them in this photo, aren't they nice?
