Too Lazy to Blog!!! But I'm Celebrating!!

Sunday, November 18, 2012

Hey, I'm kind of tired this evening, but feeling good! The half marathon was AWESOME!! Barb was very generous. She could have gone faster, but she waited for me. Love her!! She is in person just like she is on SP!! So I was so very glad she achieved a PR (personal record, beating her previous time by 19 seconds) at 2 hour 37 minutes and 36 seconds with me by her side!!

To see the race, just go appreciate the work and fellowship and support of two amazing SparkFriends, Monty and Darren. They got up at 4:30 AM to come support us and Monty took great pictures! Check out his blog for more about our awesome race!!

Thanks to everyone who sent positive, supportive messages and sent Goodies and good thought waves our way!! It all worked.

Barb did look very strong at the finish! I thought with your height difference and being slimmer, you might have an advantage! It was great that you were so challenged and now know how it feels to run a real race! More motivation to train even harder for your next race! I can imagine not too many women of your age have this accomplishment under their belts!! You are simply amazing and quite the inspiration that you can do anything you put your mind to!!!
Enjoy your rest & recovery -you sure have earned it!!!
