HALF MARATHON!

 

Let’s talk about yesterday.

I got dismissed from school a tad early so we could hit the road sooner to Manhattan since my sister and Miranda are on the committee for KSU’s Relay for Life. Well, the boys are also racing this weekend in Altus, OK so my mom was busy trying to get them sent off and so I had to wait for her to come home before we left!

We drove separately, me following her. “Why?” you ask yourself? Well, I wanted to stay up in Manhattan until Sunday to be with my sister and Miranda, while she wanted to go home after the race to get Keena out of doggie prison! So she is letting me drive all by myself to and from Manhattan like a big girl! 🙂

When we first got into town we stopped by Relay for Life! #fightingeverfighting

We left at around 8 to go do some shopping at Best Buy and Dicks Sporting Goods, and also get some Subway before hitting the road to go back to Abilene! I wanted to stay at Relay longer, but it was really cold and it takes about 30 minutes to get back to Abilene! We needed some rest!

TODAY

We woke up at around 5, got dressed and all geared up, then we left the hotel by 5:50! After picking up our race packets and getting our numbers on with our timing chips, we warmed up and made it out to the starting line by 6:45!

Mr. Martinez (one of our Assistant Principals) came to run as well! He lined up with us! Here is a picture of his kids Finn and Bode cheering their dad on!

SO PRECIOUS!

Finn is around 4, Bode is around 2!

The race went really fast! The course was flat and pretty! There was some shade on about half of the course, the other half didn’t have much shade! Good thing I had a hat on (That was drenched in sweat by the end of the race, btw)!

We crossed the finish line in 1:52.1, way faster than either of us were expecting!

Racing towards the finish! Last stretch!

Oh, and then guess what! WE BOTH PLACED! Not in the overall, obviously. But in our own age divisions! In the 15-19 age division, I placed 2nd! I was a little sad I didn’t get first, but then I realized the girl who won was 19, in college, and who probably ran races religiously. Then I felt much better.

But… 

MIRDA WON HER AGE DIVISION! She was in the 20-24 age group. STUD MUFFIN.

Did we mention that we LOVE PRO Compression? Well, we do.

So word on the street (or ladies restroom), was that the course was LONGER than the 13.1mi of a normal half marathon! Here’s what my Charity Miles GPS had to say…

So that’s how much we ran, according to my GPS! Dang Eisenhower Half-Marathon… makin’ me work harder than I have to!

What am I doing now? Well, I am currently sitting on my sister’s couch, typing away, and drinking antioxidant coffee. Yum 🙂

Oh, also eating a ton. My metabolism is KICKIN’ right now. I’m not complaining. 

I hope everyone has had a blessed weekend so far!

Run on.
