Bragging Rights?

Today was the big day! I left the house just after 6am to get downtown for the half marathon. It was still dark with the city lights on at start time. The weather was absolutely perfect as opposed to last year's. The beautiful weather helped me shave 17 minutes off my time from last year. My goal was under two hours and I was shy by 50 measly seconds. If only I could have lifted my legs off the ground that last mile...
I got to see Jared and Grey THREE times in City Park. It was fabulous and gave me that extra boost I needed. I ran with Carie and she really kept me going. Thanks Carie!
Next year anyone?

My race gear set out the night before. I was ultra prepared!

WAHOOOOOOOOOOOO!

I'm not going to lie, I'm jealous. The day of the race I was really wishing I had signed up to do it with you. It was such an amazing day! You look great. I can't believe you shaved 17 minutes off your time - that is AMAZING!

I was especially wishing I ran with you when it took me THIRTY MINUTES to drive to church. No matter what route I took, I got stuck in marathon traffic. I looked for you but never saw you.

CONGRATS! Next year for sure...
