Life As I Know It

Marathon Monday

Or in other words…”thank goodness it’s finally May” Monday.

I must admit — all of April, I really just wanted it to be May. Because May means camping. And Steeplechase. And another grad school semester finished. And more importantly, May would mean that my first half marathon was COMPLETE.

So here we are. It’s May. And all of those things are true. But I have a confession…

Half Marathon Day was FUN!

“SHUT UP!!” I hear you saying fromĀ  your desks. And trust me…I KNOW! I never thought I would utter those words either. While I knew it would be a lot better than all of our painful training runs, I had no IDEA I would like it as much as I did. So much adrenaline and people watching and accomplishment in just a couple short hours. So, SO very cool.

And while all of April I talked about my “first and last half marathon,” I’m now to May, thinking, “Well…maybe one more sometime.”

Team Barefoot before the race (and HUGE THANKS to all of you who supported us!!)

A very sleepy but very loving boyfriend there for support and encouragement.

My mom! If she hadn’t booked her flight like, a year ago, I probably would’ve quit training back in January. Thanks mom!!

Roomie Katy! My daily motivation to get up at 5:30 and get. it. done.

A very excited, very ready to run, me.

We’re tired, but we’re DONE!
