FIANLLY!!!

Well i just finished my very first 1/2 MARATHON (2hrs.10mins.) with my friend Shari.
We had so much fun training together, picking out our matching outfits and going to Long Beach, California to do the run.
We put in so many hours and months training for this day and it was totally worth it. We both want to do another soon.

I have to thank Brett for getting up with the kids every Saturday morning while i was out on my long runs, and for driving to Long Beach and back with me. Your the best babe!

And thanks to Dustin and Nicole for watching our kiddos for us so we didn't have to take them. They had a BLAST at your house and cried when we had to take them, they love you guys.

On our way to California

Getting ready to leave the hotel for the BIG race

ALL the runners, there was around 18,000 people running in the different races that day!

Shari and I at the end of the run...we did it and survived!


Brett and Darin were at the end waiting for us... it was so fun to have them there.

After the race, look closely at my shirt!

Brett finally got to watch some football this weekend, we went out for lunch and they just happened to have a sports part with the game on!!!!!

I'm so inspired, I might just give it a whirl!
(super convenient cheer seeing how my 1/2 marathon is this next weekend... also, whirl and epidural were the only words I could think of at the moment that rhyme with girl).
Good job, you look fabulous! I'm so proud of you.
