|Before the race with Julie, one of my biggest|
cheerleaders on this journey
This past Saturday was a classic example. Because I ran a half marathon. And I NEVER thought that was something I'd ever do.
And the craziest thing about it - was that it wasn't really that hard. It just took the goal... and the training plan... and the determination to not completely embarrass myself... because once I told people I was planning to do it, suddenly I had friends signing up to do it with me... which meant I actually needed to be able to do it.
And so I did it. And I actually enjoyed it a teeny tiny bit.

|Still fresh - around mile 3.5|
|Focused... around mile 5.5|

still feeling strong - more than halfway!!!

|DONE!!! 2 hours, 18 minutes!|
