Two Half Marathons

Sunday, June 30, 2013

I reached my goal to complete a half marathon! I started running longer runs and went on the treadmill for some of them. My wonderful dog accompanies me most often. One morning I felt great and decided to go the distance with her on a long beautiful trail. I made sure we were tanked up with fluids and nutrition before going out. The temperature was 48 degrees and perfect. The run was beautiful and both of us enjoyed the run and finished elated. Sadie is a Blue Heeler and could run all day long. I'm grateful for her company. I then was able to complete a timed chipped half marathon this year on my birthday. My family came to root me on and even had the announcer say happy birthday to me as I crossed the finish line. Thank you to my dog Sadie for being my running partner. I'm a sprinter by nature and I didn't know I could even run that far. :)
