Best of luck to you! I did my first half marathon back in May. If I could give you one piece of advice from my experience, it would be to just keep moving - even if that means just shuffling along, keep putting one foot in front of the other. I was going strong for over 10 miles. I paused, leaning on a guardrail to empty gravel out of my shoe - when I tried to get going again I found the last 3.1 miles were HARD! I learned my lesson. Once I was finished, I could barely walk the rest of the day! The only other advice I have is to run your own race. Find the pace that works for you and go with it. Admittedly, it's tough - especially in a big race environment. But you absolutely CAN do it.
