Lucky #7

Sunday I completed my 7th half marathon. This is quite an accomplishment for me. You see, I was the elementary student who took FOREVER to complete the one mile run in PE. I was all wheezing and crying because it was too hard. Today, I'm running half marathons. My PE teachers would be so proud.

The race starts at 6:30am, which means I was up at 4:15am. Yes you read right, 4:15am. Below is a picture of the traffic at 5:20am. See, I'm not the only crazy person in town.

A nice group shot. Everyone is still smiling.

I ended up running at a very good pace. My time was 2:22, second best time. Sister #1 beat me by 50 seconds. I'm kind of annoyed I didn't see Sister #1 during the race so we could run together. I think it would have pushed me for a faster time. Oh well, there's always next year.

Our Cheerleaders! I don't know how many times I can thank these people. Not only did they get up at 5am, they also held our clothes, phones, keys, sunglasses, and water bottles. God Bless cheerleaders! 
I also need to give a shout out to Teresa and her hubby. They were great cheerleaders as well! Sadly, no picture of them.

Blogger World, it was a great race! I might say it was one of my favorites.

7- that is awesome! I've only done 2 and not sure if I ever will again. It was one of my favorites too though. Great weather - well, maybe a little warm. But just a wonderful day all around!
