Even though we had a really great week, and there are a LOT of things I am smiling about today, one thing makes me smile the most...
Yesterday I finished the Salt Lake City Half-Marathon! Oh man...it was SO hard! I thought I had trained well enough, but I definitely could have done a lot more. I was a little dissapointed that I had to stop and walk a few times, but still proud that I finished that crazy thing!!
This is my favorite picture. I felt SO sick and was about to throw up when I saw my family at the finish line :) Best feeling ever!
My sister-in-law Jen ran it with me. She is a rockstar. Without any training she was pulling my butt the whole way! I am so glad she was with me to keep me going!
My other sister-in-law Camille (another amazing runner in my family) was at the finish line with homemade signs...I really have the best family ever! And I don't know HOW I didn't get a picture of you Camille!
Paul was amazing. He woke up super early, got all 4 kids ready and drove them all almost an hour to sit in the sun and wait for me reach the finish line. Meant the world to me that he would support me so much.
My dear friend Hollie also brought her whole family to cheer me on. Plus she took all these fantastic pictures...I am a lucky girl indeed.
What an experience! It was a lot harder than I thought it would be, but I reached my goal and finished under 2 1/2 hours (not by much...but still!) If you would have asked me yesterday, I would have said I will never do that again...but today I am already thinking I might HAVE to do it again to try and finish one a little bit stronger :)
Today I am smiling because I did something I never thought I could do...and most importantly TOLD myself I could never do. Thanks to all my wonderful friends and family that could "BEE" with me every step of the way ;)
Have a great Sunday everyone!!
