We did it!

I’m a little bit late in posting these, but nevertheless here are a few race day pictures. I finished in 2:16:03. I was pretty pleased with that time, but am already itching to improve it – that competitive streak always gets the best of me!

Thank you to everyone who cheered us on and thank you to my running partners – I love you guys!

Completing this 1/2 marathon was a big accomplishment for me.  I’ve never considered myself a runner, but my friends inspired me to train and to do something I never thought I could do.

What major goals or accomplishments have you tackled?

    Thanks for posting these & a huge thanks to Jes for being our caretaker that morning. I have no desire to do the 1/2 again but it is by far the biggest physical/mental challenge I’ve ever accomplished. Every day I think about it and still smile that we trained so hard and performed so well. What a great memory that we will always have to talk about on our Golden Girl trips! Thanks for being our pace car too. If you do it again, move up to at least Corral 20 or higher to avoid those darn walkers. 🙂
