It took a little longer, and was a little more painful than we anticipated.
But on Sunday, victory was ours.
Lauren and I crossed the finish line at the Newport Liberty Half Marathon!
We carbo-laded the night before with homemade gnocchi.
We donned our favorite running clothes and our 13.1 headbands.
The weather was humid and overcast, which later turned into hot and sunny.
|Me, Jerry, Brett, and Lauren; ready to run|
My parents were waiting for us at the finish line.
And so was Seamus.
It was worth every training run and painful mile.
And it was so nice to be next to my sister as we crossed the finish line.
Afterward, we rewarded ourselves with bagels and half-moons.
Today’s rewards will be ice packs and ibuprofen.
And planning my next race
Congrats to Jerry, Brett, Lauren, and Dennis!
(And thanks to Mom for being cheerleader and photographer this weekend!)
