Oh my gosh!!! This post is SO late...but so LIKE me lately! I am hoping I can remember the good parts of this race because it was amazing in so many ways...it had it's ups and it's downs but I still think of that race and smile and my heart swells....and it was almost 3 months ago!!!
For a brief recap of my comeback training, go here.
I was so thrilled to have my hubs, daughter (Amanda aka Prego Mamma) and 2.5 yo granddaugher Audra Kathren with me. It was really strange not having Amanda run with me but she bowed out of the race due to expecting a baby boy March 2018!!!!! (I guess I will excuse her for that ;) ) I did have a great support team in the running group I had been training with!!! And, this was only the second half marathon my hubs had ever attended. And if you know me, you know my family is everything so you can imagine how emotional I was...having them there, some great training friends and this being my COMEBACK race after a 2.5 year hiatus.
The weather was definitely on the cooler side, but that is my favorite, so I was honestly excited for the weather.
The first mile was a little jam packed so I just took my time and muddled through.
And within the first mile - mile and a a half...this happened!!
