mother's day and a half marathon


we did it.  we ran our first half marathon...on mother's day no less!  

my husband did awesome....he really wanted to finish under two hours.  he ran it in 1:55.  i ran it in 2:15.
i already want to do another one for a better time.

my mom's side of the family wore lime green shirts and cheered us on.  my husband's side of the family cheered and my father in law took the kids from 5am to the finish line.

here is my husband throwing his over shirt to deanie.  there were thousands of runners and music and bands every couple of miles!



that evening after everyone took a nap, we go together for dinner to celebrate mother's day.  this is my beautiful mom.....i love her!



and this is my beautiful mother in law (who also ran the half!) and i love her too :)

  2. Congrats on your 1/2 marathon. I'd like to do that with my hubby...what with having baby #4 in February and turning the big 3-0 in March, I certainly could use/need the exercise. lol! Love the "mom" pics. Btw, you and your husband look just like your mothers. :)

  7. Yay! I've been wondering how your 1/2 went. Your time was great! I've been training for my first 5 K & I'm at an 11 or 12 min mile (depending on the day!).
