Yes, this is me tooting my own horn!
I did my first half marathon. It was at Thanksgiving Point during their Tulip Festival. It was so beautiful. A lot of it was on the Jordan Parkway trail that follows the river. I even got to run past cows! And that was about the only thing I passed. I swear, it didn't matter how old, young, fat or fit. EVERYONE passed me. I keep thinking. Oh, they will see me towards the end where they run out of steam, and I will pass them. It was my evil plan. It didn't work, except on those two you see in the picture ahead of me.

Right after I finished the kids had their race. They were way excited!
My winning Photo. After 13.1 miles!!!I had two goals and only met one of them. In the end I averaged 9.19 minute miles. So that was the one goal I wanted under 10 minute miles I missed my other goal by two minutes! But no problem. I'm just so happy I did it and felt so great afterwards. Matt and I have already signed up for another one. He wants to try one and then I can pin down that last goal of mine and make it suffer.

Jarom was so pleased. On the way home. He said, "I think it is time to get a picture of me and my medals. I have five now and I think that's when you get a picture."
