Here I am the morning before the half:
I had an awesome friend that was walking it with her husband come and pick me up. We parked the car at around 6:45 and then walked to the start line. I LOVE running in my town! It's so nice logistically!
My love! He came out with the kids to support me! So sweet!
He's just the best.
He was on the course with his parents, kids, brother, sister-in-law, and his two nephews! So cool! My parents were supposed to be there, too. Unfortunately they couldn't make it to the house because of the marathon route! But! That meant they were able to make it out on the course to see me run! I saw them four times! AH!!!! It was awesome! Then Rob biked to see me a little after mile 10. I was cut off by a girl that was super tired and so I was freaked out a little about falling, so I missed him, even though I looked straight at him! I thought he was just a weirdo trying to help me! Nope. Dang it!
Rob and my parents were able to see me cross the finish line, as well! Which was amazing! I then hopped in Rob's car and went home to shower and eat. I love this race so much! Half marathons really aren't my thing. They hurt a little too much, but I'm hoping with better training the next one won't be so bad! I'm eyeing the Halfsy in October! Plus I have two more 10k's on the list. Plus a 15k that I ran last year to get ready for Vegas.
Look at the medals! How cool is that?
Now it's off to relax a bit and hopefully start training for the next big thing. The next race I'm signed up for is the Cornfield Cornfield 10k. It's part of the BRIN series in Nebraska. Here we go, June 16!
I may have used too many !!!! but I'm just so excited!
