I ran my first half marathon!

I did it, I ran my first half marathon! It is still kind of hard to find words to describe how it felt. Crossing the finish line was the most amazing feeling! I get to cross of my #1 thing on my 101 list!

I ran the half marathon with liz and kara…granted none of us ran together but, oh well, running really is a competition between you. Kate was only able to sign up for the 5k, but she was with us in spirit! We all got together the night before for a yummy pasta dinner, salad, garlic bread and strawberry shortcake. We also used this time to make signs for the men to hold…we are rockstars the men were too chicken to run 13.1 miles!

We got up early the next morning, and all met at kara’s at about 6am to drive to the del mar race track the start of the race. I think the pictures will tell the rest of the story…

P.S. I think I am going to run my second half marathon in November in Santa Barbara!!
