“Will run for food!!!!”
On October, 4, 2015, I finally completed my 65th half marathon. I confess I am not trying to get to 100 but I will be happy when the day comes. It is not a big deal, but it means I have been able to successfully complete 100 half marathons. Having said this, I am thankful that I am able to run today. It has been a challenging few months…I think the marathon is not a distance my body can handle…for now. I would love to give it another try, but I do not know if it is worth it.
Andrew and I drove to Kennebunkport on Friday after work. My cousin, Rachel :), lives there with her boyfriend. Rachel coincidentally talked Henri into the half marathon…making it his first half marathon!!!!! Congrats to him. For not training, I would say it was a success.
The course was absolutely beautiful. I loved it!!!! I want to go back next year. The medals, the shirts, and the swag in the bag were worth it. I felt like there were a decent amount of spectators and the water stops were great. There were people directing traffic and I even grabbed some tissues from a nice lady. I loved the pizza at the finish line and the awards were nice. For the half, first place took home 500$, second took home 300$ and third took home 150$. That is awesome! I didn’t place ha ha but I was happy with my 1:48.
It was a great day! I am so proud of Andrew for getting a time of 1:15. He is injured and trying to get back into racing. I wish I could let him borrow my heel. I hope he gets better soon. I am always envious of how well he can run, but I am glad because he is such a great guy! There is nothing better than coming to the finish line and hearing him cheer for me!!!! Best boyfriend ever.
Tonight I get to see my little lady. I miss her all the time but I am thankful for running. It keeps my mind off of missing her. I am a lucky girl to have such a wonderful daughter and to be able to run every day…and to have an amazing guy in my life. I think I am blessed. I may not be rich, but my life is rich…AMEN!
