Just keep running

Well!  I’m home from race weekend.  We were in St. George for a half marathon!  This was my first race as a 40 year old.  Oh….so old…I did pretty well.  My time was 1:47.  17th in my age group.  Looking back I always wish I ran harder.  It was a pretty hilly course.  I ran with my fastie friends who I’m sure could of ran faster than me but we decided to stick together.  The time whizzed by.  I felt like I pushed it and wasn’t too sore afterwards.  The weather was fantastic!!  Slightly chilly in the AM but it kept getting warmer as the day progressed.  Afterwards, we showered up and went and had facials and pedicures.  Then we shopped around a little and ate lunch at a yummy Thai restaurant.  We rented the movie 42, hot tubbed, and lounged around watching the movie.  I dozed mostly by the fire.  Soooooo fun!  The next morning we went for a long walk through the red rocks and then headed for home.  Here are some pics!

I’m going to go make some soup, take the kids ice skating, finish up laundry, and sigh a little that I’m not at the PINK concert…SMILE and Work Hard!!!

  1. So, the winner of your contest has to pay, and the one who doesn’t win gets rewarded? What is the motivation to win? Lol!
