Half Marathon

I was talking to my sister, Whitni, back in August about how I started running again to lose some baby weight. She asked me if I would consider doing a half marathon and I said no. She then said, if you do a half marathon, I will buy your ticket to Texas to come run it with me. Done! Of course I would run a half to get a free ticket to see one of my sisters! I loathed the last few miles but, in the end, I ran it without stopping and I was super proud of myself. I am also proud that I have lost another ten pounds since these pictures were taken!

Before the race...
I can't lie, it felt good to cross the finish!
Victory tastes good!

This says I finished third...I actually finished ninth (I think) for my age group.

Can we relive this again? Please? Sometime soon? I will even take later?
