Half Marathon

My half marathon was yesterday! I’ve had so much support from my friends and followers I feel very blessed. Many of you have asked for an update so here it is…
It was super cold! When we stepped off to race it was about 16 degrees, brrr! It didn’t warm up really either, I wasn’t a fan of the timing of this major cold front. Cheryl and I were nervous and excited! It was long, cold and AH-MAZING! I’m so thankful my body could handle it. Here is a picture from right after the race with our medals. Cheryl my awesome friend is on the left in a dark blue shirt and I am on the right in a royal blue shirt.


You can’t see my hands because I have on black gloves 🙂 I didn’t lose them. Even though I couldn’t feel them the whole time! At mile 10ish I couldn’t feel my arms and panicked a bit, I kept thinking this isn’t worth losing my arms over lol. They are fine of course, it was just a scary feeling or non-feeling I guess. Other than a toe blister I am fine today. I’m giving myself the week off from running. I think I deserve it 😉 thanks for stopping by!
