We Did it!

Wow I can't believe that it has been almost a year since my last post! If anything was worthy of jumping back into the blogging world, I felt this was:

We did it!
So a while back my cousin Nicki sent out an email asking if anyone was interested in training to run a 1/2 marathon with her. Although we might not be able to physically be together, we could train together online. Wow I thought, could I really run 13.1 miles? Why not try. After about 5 months of training, the day finally arrived. I was luckily enough to have had my sister right along side me the whole time. It meant the world to me!

The run began bright and early (6:30) in Long Beach. It was pretty small with only about 15-20 people running. We finished right in the middle, which was right where we here hoping to finish. Look at these cool medals we received!

After running 13.1 miles you work up quite the appetite. We decided to eat what any other 1/2 marathoner would.....

Donuts on the way home .....

Tommy's for lunch!

I had so much fun and hope to do it again next year! Thank you so much Nicki, Tarin and Jill, I couldn't have done it without any of you!

Oh, Nicki and Tarin.... Jill and I wished we could have run together. You were both missed!
