Mornings are my favorite time to run, and it doesn't happen now that seminary has started. I already get up at 4:40am. Then kid drop offs for school stretch from 7am-9am. By then I'm ready for a nap and the last thing I want to do is run. Yeah, I know I'm making excuses.
Anyway, Laura signed us up for a half marathon. We ran it this morning. She did awesome! I'm so proud of her for sticking to the training and pushing herself to reach her goal. I ran/walked today. You should know that in the last month I've only been running once. And that was just 2 miles. I don't recommend running a 1/2 marathon with so little preparation.
You want to hear the saddest part? I was only 20 minutes slower than my PR from the year I trained really well. Here are some pictures.
Our cheering squad.
The kids and Laura came to help me keep moving the last little bit.
I took my shoes off for the last mile because of a blister between my toes, so I was bending down to register my chip.
We did it!
