MY SISTER AND I- MILE 10
Today was the Hippy Chick Half Marathon- and it was a blast! I went with such an amazing group of women (my sister, boyfriend's mom, aunt, and family friend) and we had such a fun experience. One of my favorite parts was just walking and having three hours to walk and talk. The energy coming from all of the participants was great, as has been my experience with any kind of even like this.
Since this was a "women's only" event, there were a lot of ladies, young, old, and in between. I loved looking at everyones body and thinking "wow- each individual has a different shape and level of fitness, and yet we are all doing this together- we are all in it together." It really made me feel some love for my body. Not the kind of love of "oh I want to be skinny and hot" but "I have a body that has been good to me and I am so so very lucky for that." This was such a great experience, and I would recommend it to anyone who needs a little boost in their fitness routine. I now have a 15 page paper to write, but it is all good. Most definitely let myself have two cookies today.
