“M”LS…and running

This morning I ran the half marathon I’ve been training for.

I was worried about rain but the weather was great!

A little humid in miles 1-3 but I settled in and we had a great day.

I have been sick all week so I was worried about how I would hold up but it was actually a great run!

sure, I’m sore now, but I also feel proud and strong and happy.

Plus, I got to spend time with my friend jill, who came up from springfield to run it, too.

And now we’re tailgating… in the rain… (Well, I’m in the car blogging on my phone while the boys stand out in the rain…) before the sporting kc game.

We sure do love soccer!

I love seeing him so passionate. It’s part of why I fell in love with him. It’s why I’ve liked soccer since I first saw him play…and first saw him run across the field to dive in a giant mud puddle after a rainy soccer game.

I think Hubs likes seeing me passionate, too.

That’s why his face lit up when I surprised him by making it to the finish line this morning about 10 minutes before he expected me to. And why he got so excited when I was smiling and waving at him.

It’s awesome to have someone to be passionate with. To have adventures with.

Well, I’m off to go have fun in the rain. Let’s go SKC!

    That’s pretty good. I couldn’t run 1/26th of a marathon. Heck, I couldn’t run 1/52nd of a marathon. I’m not a runner, but I can walk pretty well.

    • Walking is also fun, and I love to take walks with Hubs. But I also like to run because it makes me feel so strong and powerful and accomplished afterward. But don’t underestimate your abilities. Everyone has to start somewhere, and a race is a great motivator!
      Thanks for the comment!

  3. Grats on finishing! That’s a real accomplishment! You should be very proud of yourself and yes, it’s wonderful to have someone there cheering you on and being excited for and with you.

    • Thanks! It was a great race, and I really enjoyed having Hubs there to share it with me. Way better than running “to no one” at other races I’ve done! Thanks for the comment!
