Oh hey everyone! Remember me, that girl that used to write fairly frequently on her blog? I am still around!
And guess what? I am now officially a half marathon runner! That is right, over the past few months all of my free time has been training for that bad boy. And last weekend I completed the Vegas Rock and Roll Half Marathon.
Is that a decent excuse for leaving this poor site so quiet? No? Maybe? Regardless that is my story and I am sticking to it!
Oh boy was training hard work and oh so time consuming. But the feeling of crossing that finish line with one of my absolute besties? Such an incredible moment.
Look, there I am at mile 8ish! Still smiling!
I didn’t talk about training much on this blog. For some reason I was afraid I would jinx it. You know, like it would make me get hurt or something. Or that I wouldn’t finish.
But I did. And I ran the entire thing (other than stopping to stand in line for the porta potty but that is what happens…and that sadly took far more time that I wish it did).
So would I do it again? Absolutely. I would do that exact course again. Vegas has a mad amount of energy. Thousands of people were cheering us along our route. They kept me going. Never did I want to stop. It was hard at times but those random strangers kept me moving.
And look, now I have this medal to show for it.
Such a high after that finish!
And a quick shout out to all of my supporters, especially my hubby. I couldn’t have done this without his support. You know since he had to watch our girls while I endured those long runs!
So basically if anyone has the urge to run the half in Vegas I would happily join you. :)
And now I can focus more on this here blog. And catch you up on my life. I have missed you guys! Fill me in on what life has been for all of you?
