RUN 13!!

So... after months of training, pain and tons of anxiety...Wade and I finished our first half marathon! It was a goal I set for myself right before I found out I was pregnant with Jericho. Consequently, it had to be put on hold. Fortunately I decided it was time to start training and see if I could reach this crazy goal in March. Wade was a sport to join me. The training for sure paid off. I used to only be able to run 1 or 2 miles and be exhausted or in pain. So for me to be able to run a full 13 miles feels pretty awesome. It was incredibly hard the past 3 miles, but I am proud to say that I finished!
Those last 3 miles I kept telling myself that I would never do another race again! It's kind of like child birth though. You quickly forget and I have already found myself planning on doing another one. Although, I might just stick to 10k's :)

p.s. I have to say thanks to my incredible sister! She brought my mom and niece out and took care of Jericho for us and met us at the finish line. It was a ton of work and I can't begin to express my gratitude to her! I love you sister!!
