We Did It!

Saturday was a fun, yet bittersweet day. We {Alex, Lachelle, Brenna, Lachelle's sister and I} ran the Pocatello 1/2 Marathon. It was so fun! I am so glad I did it. I ran the first 8 miles with out walking, then walked through the aid stations that last 5 miles. I finished 161 out of 355. Lachelle kicked everyone's trash and finished 80th! It was a little bittersweet because I was originally training for the marathon. I was a little bummed to watch the full marathoners cross the line, wishing it was me, but injury, illness, and moving just made it impossible. I will run one someday though!
Running in a big race is so fun! Anyone who needs a confidence boost should train for a race. It was a great feeling to train then have complete strangers cheer for me the whole way. Anyway, here are some picture from the big day!
That is me in the grey pant behind the gal in the blue.
Alex, he ran the whole 13 miles. Didn't even walk to take a drink.
Here I am waving to Tim after running up a killer hill! And yes I am still running in this picture!
The after shots!

Brock was very happy to have his momma back. He didn't like it too much when I ran right past him instead of stopping to pick him up! This was such a good experience, I can't wait to do another one!
