Living the Creative Life with my Family and Keeping it Real Along the Way
Real Family Fun #31
Welcome to Real Family Fun link party. I’m super glad to have you here this week.
I was out of town this weekend with a friend. We were running in a race. She ran a 5k and I ran my 2nd half marathon. It was her first ever race and she loved it! I’m so glad her race went so well and that she is hooked on running and racing now….and it is all my fault. 🙂
My half marathon was very different than I had trained for and anticipated. I won’t go into all the details now as I think I may write a recap post, but suffice it to say that the course was billed as a flat course with two rolling hills. In reality it was hill after hill after hill for 8 miles. Then we got a slight reprive for about 1.5 miles. Then at mile 10ish a huge long uphill and finally from mile 12 on it was mostly flat (or slightly uphill with one downhill). It was the hardest run of my life. I can go into more another time, but I made it and I am super proud of myself. If you follow me on instagram…you may have seen this after race picture.
I was so tired after the race, I couldn’t even bother to stand up for a picutre. But I got my coveted bling medal…and now that I can walk again, I’m a happy girl.
We also started our school year on Monday and surprisingly, it has been a less busy week (even though it has been more running around) and I have gotten caught up on a few things. I’m quite pleasantly shocked by that.
