For the second time in 7 days, “C” and I ran a half marathon – this time, we were in St. Louis for the Rock n Roll Half! We knew that going into this race that it was just going to be a fun long run and not a race. It’s a chance for a girl friend getaway weekend with a bonus of a race (and medal). The route was pretty hilly (especially for this Northern Indiana girl who lives in the FLATTEST place on earth). We finished the half in an unimpressive 3:17:07 (a total of 13.34 miles), but I never begged to sit down (though I did roll around in the grass afterward – there’s a photo of that out there some where . . . stay tuned) or to quit – I just kept going one foot after the other. This race was not one of my favorites, but I did gain some confidence with my ability to run hills (thank goodness – Big Sur is next month). Stay tuned for A LOT of posts about my 4 day weekend (no worries, there were HUNDREDS of pictures taken).
Special thanks to CHIN for driving ALL the way down to STL and hanging out with us. I can’t thank you enough for being at the race – how fun! I totally loved the weekend!!! “C” & “L” LOVED you – they want to be your new besties (frown – I’ve been dumped!).
HUGE thanks to MOA for a fun reunion! What a great weekend! I can’t believe we signed up for this race on 4/2/11 and now it’s over! Wow – soooo much fun!!!! “C” & “L” were super excited to hang out with you – they thought you were awesome! We’re looking forward to CA!
