Here I am at about 5.5 miles. I had to cheer for myself since Stephen was the photographer and the kids were talking to Uncle Nate.
I did it! Crossing the finish line felt great! It was the farthest I had ever run and I felt so good that I had accomplished the race with ease!
The best running buddies a girl could ask for... notice that Nate doesn't have a bead of sweat on him. What the?! AND he talked to us the entire run! Of course a six mile run at a comfy pace was like going grocery shopping for him!
After the race, they had a kids Fun Run. All three of the kiddos participated and they had a ball! I can't wait to scrap the pictures of them running!
The family that plays together, stays together. Go Team!
So, after the race last weekend, I needed a couple of days to rest my burning thighs. I ran again on Wednesday and then picked up a long run with my brother, Adam this morning. Seriously, he about killed me. We ran 8 miles of hills and friends, he TALKED THE ENTIRE RUN! All I could do was an out of breath "yea" for most of the conversation. I cursed him for taking me on every hill in the city, and his response? "Train on hills and you'll be prepared for hills." What the? I am no IronWoman competitor, nor do I wish to be. So, dear brother, take it easy on me next time! Hope I can get out of bed in the morning for church!
