2 Half marathons this summer? Are you kidding me? If it wasn't for the girls weekend getaway, I probably would not have done this race. I was really not ready and when the race started, it showed. I was actually feeling pretty good until about mile 9 and I was pretty much done. The race started way too late making it hot towards the end. Not to mention the hills I was totally unprepared for. I was pretty much hating life for the last 4 miles but I (very slowly) finished. I did have an awesome cheering section when I came in to the finish line since all my friends had finished about a half hour before me!!! Yes, I am that slow! But I have to remind myself.....when I started running I couldn't even run around the track one time! I have come a long way since then and I hope next summer I can do better. It was a fun weekend with great friends that I love!
Getting our carbs at the Brick Oven!
HA HA! The best part of the whole trip was shopping at the DI. We decided to go get sweatshirts we could wear before the race started, then chuck them once it warmed up. Tiff wasn't with us at the DI but she wanted something too! It was too good, how could we not buy her the sweetest slicky sweat suit in the whole store! We were laughing so hard picking out just the right thing! Who could have parted with this leapord print Ceaser's Palace sweat suit?! Its a beauty! We waited til the next morning to tell her we actuall got her something "normal"
