Running Wild- Wineglass Half Marathon #55 I think

“Running with my heart and the soles of my feet every day…I could get lost forever…”

skyThis weekend I finished my second Wineglass half marathon.  It was beautiful…It was everything a run should be from start to finish…I just wish my knee didn’t constantly remind me I am not invincible no matter how much I want to believe I am. 

mapThe course was incredibly flat and even downhill.  It had drama, excitement, and every chance for someone to set a pr.  I was there once.  I remember finishing in 2012 and my jaw dropped at my time of 1:37….but that wasn’t this weekend.  This weekend I proved that I could run for those who simply cannot…and for a while now I simply will not.

The champagne was pretty fantastic too!!!!!!!!!!  Go Oiselles!!!!!!! I also got to be on television too!!!!

  1. Way to go on your run! I’m sorry I missed you and the other birds over there, but I was at the mercy of the others in my travel group! I loved this course too and look forward to running it again 🙂
