Runner Girl

I did it... I conquered it... I didn't stop and I didn't cry. I ran the KY Derby half Marathon- 13.1 miles! Even the day after, I feel great, besides a little soreness in the thighs! Next stop... Chicago Marathon, October 9!

My brothers, Adam and Nate and sister-in-law, Lara all ran and did awesome too! Here we are at the end, sporting our medals:

Elan and Stephen were there to cheer me on at mile number 7 going into Churchill Downs and then again at the finish line.Finishing strong at 2 hours and 30 something minutes! I did it, and I'm so dang proud of myself.


  1. CONGRATS!!! Very, very cool that you did it! I am way jealous. Glad you got pictures of it, too. Looks like it was so fun!

  2. WAY TO GO!!! I am so proud of you!
