Today, Whitney, Ben and I, all ran in the Hobble Creek Half Marathon, which was actually my first half marathon. It was great fun. It actually was a really great race. Whit and I started out together, while Ben sprinted on ahead of us. By the way, Ben finished in like and hour and 38 minutes!!!! Way to go Ben. Apparently, he didn't even really train, just think of what he could accomplish if he put some effort into it! So yeah, the first 8 miles FLEW by, which was fabulous. Whit stopped at about mile 6 or 7 to use the bathroom, and I went on ahead, and finished by myself. I felt great until about mile 10, when my stomach started hurting pretty badly. I kept going though, and was so proud of myself for pushing through it and not stopping like I SO wanted to. I felt like I finished strong, coming in about 3 minutes before my goal time of 2:11 (which would be 10 minute miles, I just wanted to get under 10 minute miles). My gun time was 2:09, but my actual time from my watch, when I crossed the start and finish lines, was 2:08:16. Yay! Way to go me. Oh, and FYI, not that any of you care, I decided not to do the Steamtown Marathon that I was going to do in October. I decided to wait a couple more months since we're moving, and all that good stuff, and I didn't really feel like stressing myself out. Ok, that's all. I think I will go eat some brownies or something, now, because I, deserve them! :)
And... a cute picture, just because. Look at Sayer, he has been practicing sucking his thumb. He is so cute!!
