Half Marathon-Part two

Yesterday I finally ran the half marathon that I have been partly excited for and partly dreading. Surprisingly I enjoyed it (I know, the fact that I even finished it is surprising) and even finished ahead of my goal time. I must say though I'm pretty glad it's over. Those 4:30 training mornings were starting to get real old.



Thanks to my awesome bro. for being a good sport and letting me talk him into running it with me. Of course he kicked my trash but it was fun to train with him.

Erin, you are in much better shape than your slacker husband. you are a great motivation, and a great example. why has your husband let himself go so much?

Erin, that was fun talking the other night at the wedding. Your kids are so cute, you have a really cute family. Good job on the half marathon, I can't believe you would wake up at 4:30 to run. But I guess with two kids it's probably hard to find any other time to do it! My excuse is I can't find time to work out and I only have one :).

Erin, this is Katie Evans, Kasey's wife. I'm sorry this has to be a comment on your blog, but I have no other way of getting a hold of you. Kasey is turning 30 tomorrow, friday sept 12th and I am having a surprise party for him. I sent you guys an invite to what I thought was your address but it got returned to me. We would love for you guys to come if you can make it. I did send an invitation to Julie and Chris Burton and I think you are good friends with Julie so if you guys want to come, you can get details from them. Thanks!
