This weekend, I ran (and walked) my first 1/2 Marathon! There were MANY hills, especially at the end, so I did walk very briskly around mile 11 for a bit, but I did run for a good long while! It was challenging, but I finished! And, I raised over $2,500.00 for Marlene's Mission! I could not have done it without so much support from my husband, family, and friends!

Here's some photos of the medal and celebration cake from Sugarbakers.

Finishing medal:

Celebration flowers from my husband. Yellow cake with Raspberry filling and Amaretto buttercream. Best bakery cake ever.

1/2 Marathon Training Progress Log!!!!

Well, it's been a long, but enjoyable winter! (When is the last time anyone has said that?) Tonight is the last track workout before the big race on Sunday. I have been dealing with some tendinitis in my ankle, but all looks to be well to run this weekend. I would like to thank everyone for all their support! I'll check back in next week for a full race report.
