Chapter 2 page 471–STL RnR Half

I’ve already posted a little bit about my feelings about the STL RnR Half in a previous post, and ultimately I’m not sure that I have any real feelings for or against it.  It wasn’t my best nor my worst race so . . . it just was.  I’m glad that I did it.  I’m glad that I had the chance to share the weekend with SEVERAL friends including:  MOA, CHIN (a family friend from CHI whose name begins with an “N” – creative, huh!), “C”, “L”, and Jenn (from my half marathon class).  Given I don’t have any FUN stories to share about cool people I met during the race, I’ll leave you with scenic pictures taken by “C”, “L”, and MOA during the race (I love that they have the energy to take pictures during the race – I’m just trying not to die).
